Liberty, KY - Kentucky State Police Post 15 is investigating a two vehicle fatal collision that occurred on November 2, 2021, at approximately 7:24 P.M. eight miles north of Liberty on U.S. 127.

Preliminary investigations indicate that a juvenile was operating a 2005 Yamaha motorcycle south bound on U.S. 127 when a 2020 Dodge pickup, turning off of KY 906, attempted to turn north bound on U.S. 127 and crossed in his path.

The motorcycle struck the pickup in the left side and the driver was ejected.

The Dodge pickup was operated by 28 year old David Bugg of Danville, KY. Bugg had one passenger, 28 year old Austin May of Perryville, KY. Bugg and his passenger were both wearing seatbelts and were not injured.

The juvenile was wearing a helmet. He was transported to Ephraim McDowell hospital, where he was later pronounced deceased.

This collision remains under investigation by Trooper Weston Sullivan. He was assisted at the scene by other KSP personnel, Casey County EMS and the Casey County Sheriff's Office.
