PADUCAH, KY (KFVS) -

First responders were out on the scene of a crash on Route 62 in McCracken County. It happened five miles out of Paducah on Saturday afternoon.

Deputies are looking for an SUV that left the scene.

Around 4:05 p.m., a white SUV driven by an unknown driver was westbound in the 8800 block of Blandville Road, which is also U. S. Highway 62 West.

The drivers and witnesses involved said the unknown white SUV crossed over the centerline and was driving towards another SUV, forcing the second, eastbound SUV off the roadway.

The eastbound SUV was driven by Dillon Ferguson, 20, of Wickliffe, Kentucky. Ferguson also had a passenger, Derrick Ferguson, 22, of Paducah, Kentucky. After driving off the roadway to the right in an attempt to avoid a head-on collision, Deputies say Dillon Ferguson lost control of the SUV he was driving and it drove back across the roadway into the path of a westbound pickup truck.

The pickup truck was driven Jason Wildharber, 41, of LaCenter, Kentucky. Investigators say the pickup tried to stop, but collided with the SUV forcing both vehicles off the roadway.

Dillon and Derrick Ferguson had to be extricated by mechanical means, by Concord Fire Fighters and Mercy EMS. Dillon Ferguson was transported to Baptist Health Hospital and Derrick Ferguson was air lifted from the scene of the collision by PHI Life Flight Helicopter to Deaconess Hospital in Evansville, Indiana.

The SUV that crossed over the centerline left the scene. If anyone has any information about the white medium sized SUV that left the scene, they are advised to contact the McCracken County Sheriff's Department at 270-444-4719.
