Revelo man involved in fatal wreck

4 vehicles involved at Somerset bypass

SOMERSET —  A McCreary County man was involved in a four-vehicle fatal accident on Saturday afternoon in Pulaski County.

    According to the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Office, units responded at 4:40 p.m. Saturday to the intersection of South US 27 and KY 914 (southern bypass) about a half-mile south of Somerset.

    Upon arrival at the scene, investigators determined that Doyle Morgan, 72, of Revelo was operating a 2006 Honda southbound on US 27 when he failed to stop for a traffic light at the bypass intersection. Morgan struck a 2009 Harley Davidson motorcycle operated by Ronald Forland, 38, of London, as Forland was attempting to cross US 27 to proceed eastbound on KY 914.

    After the impact, the Morgan vehicle then struck a northbound 2004 Chevrolet that was operated by James Kidd, 67, of Somerset, as well as a northbound 2008 Chevrolet operated by Kelly Gibson, 53 of Somerset. Both vehicles had been stopped at the intersection waiting for the traffic signal to change.

    Forland was treated at the scene by Somerset-Pulaski County EMS, then airlifted to the University of Kentucky Medical Center by Air Methods. He was later pronounced dead at the Lexington hospital by the Fayette County Coroner’s Office.

    Forland’s wife, 37-year-old Eugenia Forland, was riding as a passenger on the motorcycle. Somerset-Pulaski EMS treated and transported her to Lake Cumberland Regional Hospital but she was later flown to UK Medical Center. At press time, she was listed in fair condition.

    Pulaski County Sheriff Todd Wood indicated that Morgan, Kidd and Gibson were not transported for medical treatment.

    Sheriff’s units were assisted at the scene by the Parkers Mill Fire Department and the Somerset Police Department.

    Kentucky State Police preliminary statistics show that 452 lives have been lost this year in 359 crashes on Kentucky highways through August 28.
