TOWN OF PARIS — A 35-year-old man was ticketed and hospitalized after he suffered a diabetic episode behind the wheel and crashed on Sulphur Springs Road Thursday night.
Sheriff’s deputies said Joseph R. Yaletchko, 35, of Chadwicks, was westbound at 7:54 p.m. when he started suffering the episode. Deputies said his wife was following behind him in another vehicle and she tried to stop Yaletchko’s car, but failed.
