One man was injured…another was arrested…following a bizarre incident Saturday morning near Eli.
Deputy Sheriff Lee Smith told WJRS NEWS that Richard “Dick” Kazsuk was cutting logs, in a field, off of Eastham Road, when a 1992 Ford Mustang being driven by 38 year old Randy Knight of Russell Springs left the roadway, traveled into the field and struck Kazsuk.
Deputy Smith said Kazsuk was transported by ambulance to the Russell County Hospital for treatment of leg and possible back injuries….but miraculously his injuries weren’t critical.
Knight reportedly attempted to flee the scene but was detained by a neighbor until Deputy Smith and other emergency personnel arrived.
Knight was arrested for DUI 2nd offense and Wanton Endangerment. He was lodged in the Russell County Detention Center.
That incident occurred around 10:50 a.m. Saturday.
