Motorcycle Crash Claims Life

A man has died after a motorcycle crash on U.S. 23.

The crash happened just before 10 Sunday night near Shannon Branch Rd.

The Lawrence County Sheriff's Office says 53-year-old Elmer Maynard of Debord, Ky. was pronounced dead at the scene.

Deputies say Maynard lost control of his motorcycle and hit a guardrail, throwing Maynard from the bike. Officers say the motorcycle continued on several hundred feet after Maynard was thrown from it.

An investigation into the crash is on-going. Speed is believed to have been a factor.
