BCSO responds to motorcycle wreck on Mammoth Cave Road

A Franklin man was injured Sunday afternoon in a single-motorcycle crash.

Barren County Sheriff’s Officer personnel responded to the scene of a motorcycle crash at approximately 2:40 p.m. on Mammoth Cave Road and found a 1986 Honda motorcycle driven by James M. McCoy, 36, of Franklin had crashed, according to a press release from BCSO.

Franklin had been riding south when the brakes on his motorcycle locked, causing him to lose control near the intersection of Old Mammoth Cave Road.

The bike slid down the roadway on its side for several feet before finally coming to a stop.

McCoy was taken to T.J. Samson Community Hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries. He was wearing a helmet at the time of the crash, according to the release.

The sheriff’s office was assisted at the scene by Cave City Volunteer Fire Department and Barren-Metcalfe Emergency Medical Services personnel.
