A rider was killed in Knott County on Monday when his motorcycle was hit by a car that drifted into his lane.
Ricky Allen Shepherd, 23, was riding on Montgomery Road in Emmalena when a car driven by Twyla Moberly crossed the center line, according to a news release from Kentucky State Police.
The Hindman man was declared dead at the scene by the Knott County coroner, the release said. He was not wearing a helmet.
Moberly did not appear to have any serious injuries, Trooper Tony Watts said.
It's unclear what caused Moberly's car to cross the center line. The crash was still under investigation Tuesday, Watts said.
