Boy on bicycle dies after being struck by SUV

A 6-year-old Frankfort boy riding a bicycle was struck by a vehicle and later died Saturday.

Franklin County Coroner William Harrod identified the victim as Charles Allen Semones.

Harrods said Charles was riding a bicycle in the Excel Court neighborhood off U.S. 60, where he lived.

The child was hit about 6 p.m., by a sport-utility vehicle driven by Pamela Smith, 60, Harrods said. Charles was rushed to the Frankfort Regional Medical Center, where he died shortly after 7 p.m.

The case remains under investigation by the Frankfort police department.
