wreck2 300CADIZ, Ky. (6/3/13) – Cadiz Police investigated a crash today, Monday, June 3, 2013, at 11:18 am that occurred in the parking lot of 308 Main Street.  
 
Mary C. Staples, 57, of Linton Lane, Cadiz, veered off the left side of the road, struck a parked pickup truck and then struck a telephone pole.  Staples told police she had been recently suffering from seizures and may have blacked out while driving.

Staples was wearing a seat belt that, coupled with the airbag, likely prevented more serious injury.
The pickup truck was owned by David White, 63 Brown Street in Cadiz and was unoccupied.
