RICHMOND, Ky. (WKYT) - The Fayette County coroner says a man who was seriously injured after a motorcycle accident in Richmond Friday evening has died.

Accident reconstruction crews were on the scene for several hours cleaning up the aftermath of the wreck which happened when a motorcycle and silver Camry collided.

Richmond Police say the accident took place around 5:30 Friday afternoon at the intersection of Leimaur Drive and Barnes Mill Road.

When we arrived on scene, the Harley Davidson motorcycle was lying on the street on its left side and most of the damage to the Camry appeared to be on the front of the driver’s side.

The Fayette County coroner confirms that the motorcycle driver, 59-year-old Larry Don Faulkner, later died at UK Hospital.

Richmond Police tell us the driver of the Camry was a woman who refused treatment on scene and did not suffer any injuries.

Police are still not able to say what caused the wreck and at this time, there haven't been any charges filed against either party.
