TURNERSVILLE — Cows may have spooked a Bradfordsville man, who was airlifted Aug. 8 after wrecking on his motorcycle along Ky. 78.
Lincoln County Sheriff Curt Folger said Jeremy Clarkson was traveling on Ky 78 near Turnersville around noon when he came around a curve and saw three cows standing next to the road.
"He did not make contact with the cattle," Folger said. "He kind of freaked out a little bit with the cattle sitting right there by the side of the road and he locked up his brakes. When he did, he lost control of his motorcycle."
Clarkson was airlifted from the scene with unknown injuries.
Folger said when he arrived on the scene, Clarkson was being loaded into the helicopter. A passenger who had been riding with Clarkson told him what happened, he said.
