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.
Never miss a local story.
It's unclear what caused Moberly's car to cross the center line. The crash was still under investigation Tuesday, Watts said.
