A Princeton woman was killed in a wreck in Marshall County Labor Day afternoon.
A news release from the Marshall County Sheriff's Office says the incident happened around 2:30 on U.S. 68 at the entrance to Forgotten Past near Briensburg.
Police say 61-year old Michael Wilkerson of Princeton was operating a motorcycle and was stopped to make a left turn when a pickup driven by 16-year old Nash Carter of Mayfield was unable to stop in the heavy rain and struck the bike in the rear. Canter's pickup was pulling a trailer loaded with ATV's.
Wilkerson and his wife—62-year old Mary Wilkerson—were thrown from the motorcycle and were taken to Marshall County Hospital. Mary Wilkerson was pronounced dead and Michael Wilkerson was flown to another area hospital for treatment of serious injuries.
Canter and his passengers were not injured.
