PULASKI COUNTY, Ky. (WKYT) - A man is dead after a crash in Pulaski County.

According to Kentucky State Police, it happened Thursday around 1 p.m. near the intersection of KY 1247 and Floyd Switch Road.

KSP says 21-year-old Bryson W. Goff, of Eubank, was driving a pickup truck that had a trailer attached north on KY 1247 when his vehicle side-swiped another pickup truck.

Sarah Evans, who lives in the area, came home Thursday afternoon just after the crash happened and found Goff’s truck and cattle trailer in her front yard. She says they hit a big tree in her yard.

“You see how big that tree is? It took it up out of the ground. Wasn’t like he hit it, it came up out of the ground,” said Evans.

Goff was pronounced dead at the scene by the Pulaski County Coroner’s Office. We’re told several cattle in the trailer his truck was pulling were killed as well.

“I just feel for his family. To lose, I have a daughter the exact same age. That is the first thing I thought of. I couldn’t stand to lose my child,” said Evans.

No injuries were reported in the other pickup.

KSP says the investigation into the crash is ongoing.
