Kentucky Sheriff Recovers After Accident

A Central Kentucky sheriff is recovering tonight after being hurt in a flying accident.

Bourbon County Sheriff Mark Matthews was injured while trying to land a glider on the Houston Oaks Golf Course last night in Paris.

His brother took him to Central Baptist Hospital where he remains Saturday night. Friends tell us he will require surgery later this week.

Flying a glider is a longtime hobby of Matthew's.
