STAFF REPORT

Note: This report was corrected at 12:31 p.m. to remove a detail about street blockage which was related to a different accident. The correct information has been included. At 3:11 p.m. the sentence that said WKYT reported the driver “hit a fence post” was removed because it could not be verified by Boyle County Deputy Coroner Mike Wilder.

UPDATE: The name of the motorcyclist who was killed is Ryan Turner. 

A 29-year-old Harrodsburg man, Ryan Turner, was killed in a motorcycle crash last night in Boyle County after losing control of the vehicle, according to WKYT. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

According to ABC 36 WTVQ, the accident occurred at Highway 150 West, and the Boyle County Sheriff’s Office worked the case. Last night the Perryville Fire Department posted on Facebook that Highway 150 West at the Perryville city limits was closed for a fatality accident and that drivers were encouraged to take a different route, and later the department announced when it reopened.
