A motorcycle and a car collided on U.S. 42 in Verona, Kentucky on Monday August 5, 2013. According to the Boone County Sheriff’s Office, a 22-year-old man was driving a Suzuki motorcycle on U.S. 42 near South Fork Road when he collided with a Ford Taurus around 7:15 a.m.
Reports indicate that the Ford Taurus was stopped and waiting at the intersection of South Fork Road and U.S. 42 to make a left turn eastbound on U.S. 42. The driver of the Taurus, 56-year-old Terry Gibson, reportedly started to pull out to make the turn and then stopped when he noticed the motorcycle. The motorcyclist allegedly tried to brake but was unable to avoid hitting the car. Mr. Gibson was not reported to be injured in this accident.
The driver of the motorcycle has been identified as Anthony Joseph (A.J.) Kramer of Erlanger, Kentucky. He was reportedly wearing a helmet at the time of the accident, but did not survive the crash. Mr. Kramer attended the University of Louisville where he was a chemical engineering major and an Air Force ROTC cadet. His father, Tony Kramer, is the chief of police in Edgewood, Kentucky.
The road was closed until approximately 10 a.m. on the morning of Monday August 5, 2013 as police investigated this deadly accident.
Our Kentucky wrongful death lawyers extend our deepest condolences to Mr. Kramer’s parents, Tony and Penny Kramer, and to his brother, grandparents and other loving relatives and friends following this tragic fatal Kentucky motorcycle accident.
