Lexington man is killed in motorcycle crash in Boyle County

A Lexington man was killed Thursday night in a motorcycle crash near Danville, Boyle County Coroner Dr. Don Hamner said.

Matthew Alsept, 34, was pronounced dead at Ephraim McDowell Regional Medical Center in Danville, Hamner said.

Alsept was riding on Ky. 52 (Lancaster Road) east of Danville when the motorcycle left the road.

“Sounds like he lost control on a wet highway because it had started pouring down rain just before the accident,” Hamner said.

The crash happened near Chrisman Lane, about three miles east of Danville, he said.
