Two individuals from Leitchfield lost their lives in a motorcycle crash on the night of Wednesday, Aug. 13.
At around 7:20 p.m. on Wednesday, the Grayson County Sheriff’s Office, Grayson County Emergency Medical Services, and the Leitchfield Fire Department responded to a motorcycle crash at 2373 Salt River Road in Leitchfield.
John Marshall, 52, and Dayna Baker, 53, were travelling east on Salt River Road when Marshall’s 2012 Harley Davidson ran off the edge of the road, according to GCSO Deputy Bryan Hammons, who investigated the accident.
Marshall, who was also driving the Harley, lost control, and both he and Baker, who was a passenger, were thrown from the motorcycle, said Hammons.
Marshall and Baker, who were both wearing helmets at the time of the accident, were transported from the scene by GCEMS to Twin Lakes Regional Medical Center.
From TLRMC, Marshall and Baker were flown by helicopters to University of Louisville Hospital, where both died as a result of accident-related injuries, Hammons said.
