A Princeton man was killed in a vehicle versus motorcycle wreck in Lyon County yesterday.
A news release from Kentucky State Police says 49-year old Jimmy Gass of Clay was attempting to turn off of U.S. 62 onto U.S. 641 just after 5pm and proceeded into the path of an oncoming motorcycle driven by 26-year old Randy Stephen of Princeton.
Stephen didn’t have time to stop and was thrown from his bike upon impact. Police say he was wearing a helmet, but speed may have been a factor in the collision. Stephen was taken to Caldwell County Medical Center, where he pronounced deceased.
Gass went uninjured in the incident.
