Carlisle man dies in farm accident

A 78-year-old Carlisle man was killed early Saturday in a farm accident in Bourbon County.

Police believe Glenn Ritchie Jr. was trying to close a farm gate while checking his cattle early Saturday. When he exited his 1989 Chevrolet pickup truck, the truck rolled backwards and ran over Ritchie, Kentucky State Police said in written release. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

The exact time of the accident is unclear. Ritchie was last seen around 8 a.m. and was found sometime after 10:40 a.m.
