Fatal Motorcycle Collision

breakingnews FATALACCIDENT 300TRIGG COUNTY, KY (7/4/12) – One woman has died due to injuries sustained in a motorcycle collision Tuesday afternoon. The Kentucky State Police report says the incident occurred around 2:30 p.m. Tuesday afternoon on US 68 near the intersection with KY 272.

When Mr. Owen came over a hill he noticed westbound traffic was stopped due to a motorist waiting to turn onto KY 272.
