Motorcyclist dies after head-on collision

ELIZABETHTOWN, KY (WAVE) - A 33-year-old Texas man has died after being involved in a head-on collision in Meade County.

According to Joseph Mattingly with the Kentucky State Police, the crash happened just after 5 p.m. on Oct. 11 at the intersection of KY144 and US60, three miles north of Flaherty.

Mattingly says a 2009 Chevrolet Equinox, driven by 55-year-old Rosemary K Holston from Vine Grove, KY, was eastbound on KY144, when she started to turn left onto US60, directly into the path of a westbound 2006 Kawasaki motorcycle, operated by Nix.

The vehicles struck head-on and Nix was unseated from the motorcycle. He was flown to University Hospital with life threatening injuries. Holston suffered minor injuries, but refused treatment.

Nix was pronounced dead early Tuesday morning.
