Two people were injured — one severely — after a single-motorcycle accident occurred on the Cumberland Parkway Friday afternoon.

The driver of the motorcycle, Barry L. Turner, 50, of Booneville, suffered a head injury, according to the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Office. He was treated at the scene by Somerset-Pulaski County EMS before being airlifted by Air Methods to the University of Kentucky Medical Center.  

According to a U.K. Medical Center spokesperson, Turner was in serious condition as of press time Friday.

His passenger, April Bennet, also of Booneville, was treated at the scene and transported to Lake Cumberland Regional Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

The accident happened around 12:09 p.m. about 4.5 miles west of Somerset. Turner was operating a Harley Davidson motorcycle westbound on the Cumberland Parkway when it crashed.

According to a preliminary investigation by Deputy Brett Thomas, it appears that a flat tire may have contributed to the wreck. PCSO reports that Turner was not wearing a helmet.

Volunteers from the Nancy Fire Department assisted at the scene.
