Motorcyclist badly injured in Estill County accident


A motorcyclist was badly injured this evening in a wreck that occurred on Sand Hill Road in Estill County, at the top of the Hill, just past the business Andy’s Gymnastics. The wreck occurred just after 6 p.m., and Estill County Sheriff Chris Flynn informs WBON-TV9 that Kentucky State Police reconstruction units were brought in to investigate, and the roadway was closed for hours while that took place. Traffic was rerouted to Blackburn Road to Possum Run while the investigation took place.

The accident involved the motorcycle and and possibly a Kia type vehicle. The names of those involved have not been released at this time, but the motorcyclist was reportedly air lifted for treatment, and is reported to be in critical but stable condition.

WBON-TV9 will follow developments and have more information as it is released.
