Scottsville Motorcyclist Killed in Wreck in Franklin

A motorcyclist is dead after crashing into a pickup in Franklin Monday morning.

Police say the motorcycle hit the pick-up East Cedar Street.

The motorcyclist, 55-year-old Dave Hardin of Scottsvile, was pronounced dead at the scene by the Simpson County Coroner.

Police say the driver of the pick-up, 34-year-old Eric Elswick of Prestonsburg, had no injuries.

"It appears at this time that the motorcycle crossed over the double yellow lines and struck the pick-up truck," said Franklin Police Corporal Kevin Williams, "which would have been in his left front driver's quarter area, and of course, the operator of the motorcycle was ejected."

Police also say the road may have been wet from rain Monday morning.
