PADUCAH, KY - A one-car crash early Wednesday morning on Cairo Road at the intersection of Swanson Lane claimed the life of a McCracken County teen.

Sheriff' Jon Hayden reports that a 2004 Honda Accord ran off the roadway and struck a tree just before 2:30 am Wednesday, fatally injuring 19-year-old Dylan M. Rogers of Paducah. Two others in the car, 19-year-old Nicolas Robertson and 19-year-old Joseph Tune, both of Kevil, received minor injuries.

The investigation into the crash is ongoing and is being reconstructed by the Paducah Police Accident Reconstruction Team. The position of the passengers and the identity of the driver are still under investigation.

Traffic had to be diverted between Noble Road and Moody Road for about five hours while the reconstructionist processed the scene.

Police say speed appears to have been a factor in the accident.

It's sad that one of the so called 'good friends" ran from the sceen of the wreck instead of staying to see if his friend was dead or alive and then didnt bother to go tell Rodgers Mother that her son was injured in a car accident. GIven the fact that this kid has 2 DUI's and is set to serve some time in jail soon for that makes me think that he might have been driving the car. Good friend or self centered little prick? I hope the police can determine who was driving so that Dylan's Mother can try to pull her life back together and move forward. RIP Dylan!!

No one ran for help, but heard the Robertson boy did run from the scene of the crash only to get a ride home first! Why run and leave your injured and dying friends all alone if not guilty of something? Sure hope toxicology was done on him although that would not bring Dylan back.

Agreed, if she bought the beer for underage teens, then she would be the murderer legally. :-( she should probably let the issue be.
