motorcycle accident red 300HOPKINS COUNTY, Ky. (5/7/13) – On Monday, May 6, 2013, Deputies from the Hopkins County Sheriff’s Office were dispatched to a reported traffic collision on Beulah Road, in front of 13435 Beulah Road.
 
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. As Patterson traveled over a hill, he observed Skimehorn’s Nissan truck slowly pulling in to the driveway. Patterson had to swerve left to avoid striking the Nissan truck. When he did so, he struck the dirt bike being operated by Bean.
 
Upon further investigation, it was discovered that Patterson was impaired at the time the collision occurred. Patterson was placed under arrest and transported to Baptist Hospital by deputies of the Hopkins County Sheriff’s Office, treated and released to those deputies, and then lodged in the Hopkins County Jail.
