Motorcyclist injured in collision with truck
The motorcyclist who was injured Saturday in a collision with a truck is in stable but poor condition at University of Kentucky Chandler Medical Center, according to a family member.
The accident occurred at 11:41 a.m. Saturday when a 1999 GMC pickup driven by Carter M. Cox, 66, of 2465 Old U.S. 127 South, attempted to pull out of the entrance to Woodstock Farms to head north on old U.S. 127 South toward Danville, according to a police report. Cox told police he didn't see a 2000 Honda motorcyle driven by Arthur Sidney Southerland, 57, of Nicholasville, that was traveling south on old U.S. 127 South.
Cox told police he didn't remember what happened, but witnesses said Southerland was traveling in the left lane and was struck by Cox's truck, which was at an angle in the left lane. Southerland, an Army veteran of Vietnam, was treated at the scene by Boyle Emergency Medical Service and then removed by helicopter to University of Kentucky Chandler Medical Center.
