A fatal motorcycle wreck in Boyle County on Thursday night resulted in the death of Ryan Turner, 29, of Harrodsburg.
Boyle County Sheriff’s Office Chief Deputy Chris Stratton said witness Steven Turner, who was a fellow motorcyclist, along with Ryan Turner when the accident happened, said Ryan Turner was attempting to pass a car when his motorcycle began wobbling, and then he hit the curb and wrecked.
“He was thrown,” Stratton said. “The motorcycle flipped several times.”
Boyle County Deputy Coroner and Director of Emergency Management Mike Wilder said EMS was dispatched to the scene at 9:46 p.m.
The accident took place just 100 yards west of the “Welcome to Perryville” sign on U.S. Highway 150 West, so it happened just outside of Perryville city limits, said Perryville Fire Department Chief Anthony Young.
Stratton said when responders got to the scene they found Ryan Turner lying in the grass about
