The accident happened Saturday in front of the Sonic restaurant on Highway 60. Kentucky State Police say Patterson was driving in the opposite direction and crossed multiple lanes before hitting 54-year-old Sharon Gaines' car. The coroner's office says Gaines died on scene.
Patterson was treated for his injuries at a local hospital and was arrested upon his release. He's scheduled to be in court tomorrow at 1:30 p.m.
