2-vehicle accident leads to arrest

A driver involved in a two-vehicle accident Friday was arrested for driving on a suspended license.

Mayfield Police officers responded to a collision involving a commercial vehicle on U.S. 45, just north of Interstate 69. Upon arrival, an officer observed that the passenger car's air bags had deployed, so as a cautionary measure, the Mayfield Fire Department EMS was called in to medically clear the operator, Demarco Walker, 21, of South Fulton, Tennessee.

It was determined Walker had pulled out of a gas station parking lot into the path of a tractor-trailer, which resulted in his vehicle being struck on the driver's side. The driver of the tractor-trailer, Marty Jackson, 51, of Paducah, was uninjured.

A computer check of their licenses revealed that Walker's driving privileges was suspended after being found guilty of DUI. He was arrested and taken to the Graves County Jail where he was charged with driving on a DUI suspended license (first offense), and failure of owner to maintain required insurance (second offense).

Both vehicles were inoperable and towed. The Mayfield Police Department was assisted by the Mayfield Fire Department, Burl's Wrecker Service, and Gibson's Towing.
