 Vehicle Accident in Front of Powderly Doughnut Shop

MUHLENBERG COUNTY, Ky. (03/28/15) – At around 11:00 AM on Saturday, March 28, 2015, local first responders were dispatched to the scene of a single-vehicle accident that occurred in front of Powderly Doughnut Shop on West Main Street.

Reporters on the scene found that Eddy Settle, a resident of Greenville, was traveling through Powderly on West Main in a red Pontiac when his vehicle exited the roadway in front of the Doughnut shop. The vehicle hit ground wires from a power pole, snapping the wires, hit the Doughnut Shop mailbox, traveled across a ditch line and through a yard located at 400 West Main. The vehicle came to a stop after hitting more ground wires from another power pole.
