A motorcyclist is dead after a three-vehicle crash in Boone County on Wednesday night, according to the Boone County Sheriff’s Office.

The crash happened shortly after 6 p.m. at the intersection of US 42 and Fowlers Lane. 

Police say 64-year-old Gary Grindley, of Union, was traveling southbound on U.S. Highway 42 in a 2013 Nissan Pathfinder. The driver was trying to turn left into a Kroger lot when he realized the entrance was closed. 

He then attempted to make an improper right turn to Fowlers Lane while traveling across several southbound lanes on U.S. Highway 42, according to the news release. During the right turn, he struck a 2001 Harley Davidson motorcycle.

The motorcyclist Jacob Trapp, 23, of Burlington, was traveling southbound on U.S. Highway 42 in the left lane, according to the sheriff’s office.

After colliding with Trapp, Grindley’s vehicle skidded through the intersection, striking a 2018 Lincoln MKC that was sitting at a red light on Fowlers Lane. 

Trapp was taken to St. Elizabeth’s Hospital Florence and died from his injuries. Police say no other injuries were reported in the collision. 

The accident is under investigation and no charges have been filed at this time.
