Frankfort Man Dies In Scott County Motorcycle Crash

GEORGETOWN, KY -- A Frankfort man has died in a motorcycle-vs.-car wreck on what neighbors describe as a dangerous stretch of road in Scott County near the Franklin County line.

Georgetown Police say 45-year old Johnny M. Turner of Peaks Mills Road east of Frankfort, died of multiple head and internal injuries after a head-on collision with a car.

Franklin County Deputy Coroner Kelly Adams pronounced Turner dead shortly before noon Saturday at the Frankfort Regional Medical Center.

The 911 call was routed to Frankfort, although the accident occurred on Woodlake Road just inside Scott County.

    Did this happen on Georgetown Rd? There are too many accidents on Georgetown Rd. Maybe, we need to slow the speed down to 45 since every one already goes 65. Also, there are a lot of houses & businesses along that road. Perhaps, putting in traffic lights. People used that road a lot but over the years there has been too many accidents. If people want to go fast, they can use I-75 and we need to expand Georgetown road and put in some traffic lights. What does everyone think?

    May is motorcycle awareness month. I hope the media floods the airwaves with reminders for drivers to become extra aware of motorcycles on the highways. With gas prices on the rise, there will be more motorcycles than ever on the roads this summer. So there will be a lot of new riders. Look both ways before pulling out from an intersection, not once but TWICE! Don't pass unless you LOOK carefully for a motorcycle. Lastly, DON'T cross the centerline, especially in a curve!! The majority says "I did not see a motorcycle" after an accident, so please be aware. My sincere condolences to the family of Johnny.....

    My mother worked with John for years and she said he was a wonderful man and he will be missed by many people. We will keep his family and friends in our thoughts and prayers through this terrible time. God Bless

    God bless his family in times of difficult. We need to be careful out there especially during spring and summer. All drivers need to slow down and stay alert. Please... Please... Please.. slow down and be careful and keep an eye out for people walking on the streets, motorbikes etc. Please, be careful. God bless.
