Neither of the Moores were wearing seat belts. Sanders was flown to the University of Louisville Hospital for injuries that were not life-threatening.

Injury collision — A Clarksville, Tenn., woman was injured Saturday in a two-vehicle collision in Logan County.

At 5:25 a.m. Saturday, the Logan County Sheriff’s Department was called to U.S. 79 south where a 2003 Chevrolet Trailblazer driven by Michael F. Steil, 41, of Hopkinsville, crossed the center line on several occasions before striking a 2006 Chevrolet Impala driven by Diane Borden, 44, of Clarksville, Tenn., according to a release from the Logan County Sheriff’s Department. 

A witness told deputies that after striking Borden’s vehicle, Steil’s vehicle continued traveling south until Steil lost control of the SUV, causing it to roll four times before coming to a final rest on its top in a field.

Borden was taken to an area hospital where she was treated and released. Steil refused treatment at the scene and was taken to the Logan County Detention Center. He is charged with driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, controlled substance not in proper container and possession of a controlled substance, according to jail records. Steil posted a $2,500 unsecured bond and was released later that day.
