Upon arrival on the scene, it was discovered that Zack Skimehorn was operating a 1989 Nissan truck on Beulah Road and, utilizing a rope, was pulling 25-year-old Daniel Bean, of Dawson Springs, on an off-road dirt bike in an attempt to get the dirt bike to start. Skimehorn and Bean had traveled west on Beulah Road, had slowed, and were attempting to pull in to the driveway of 13435 Beulah Road.
 
Jimmie Patterson, 38, of Dawson Springs was operating his 2006 Chevrolet pickup truck east on Beulah Road.
