Two men die in Boyle County crashes

Two men died in separate crashes in Boyle County on Tuesday afternoon.

A 38-year-old man who has not been publicly identified died when the truck in which he was a passenger ran off the road and hit a tree.

That crash happened at about 3 p.m. on Alum Springs Road on the west side of the county, said Dr. Donald Hamner, Boyle County coroner.

He said the driver of the truck was taken to Ephraim McDowell Regional Medical Center, but he did not know the extent of that man's injuries.

The second crash occurred a few hours later on U.S. 150 at the intersection with Airport Road when the driver of a car lost control and the vehicle flipped, said Deputy Coroner Mike Wilder.

The driver, Harrison Hardin, 67, of Stanford, was pronounced dead in the emergency room at Ephraim McDowell.

Wilder said Hardin's 18-month-old great-grandson, who was riding in a car seat, was not injured.
