Robert Bryant Killed in Semi-Trailer Accident in Logan County, KY
Logan County, KY — April 20, 2023, Robert Bryant was killed as the result of a semi-trailer accident just before 9:30 a.m. along Bowling Green Road.
Investigators said that the incident happened in the area of Bowling Green Road and Pleasant View Drive.
According to initial statements about the crash, 39-year-old Robert T. Bryant of Glasgow was in a Dodge pickup headed eastbound along Bowling Green. Another vehicle, said to be a flatbed semi-trailer, was also going eastbound.
Authorities believe that the semi-trailer turned left from the right lane of travel toward the median so it could turn around. This led to the tractor-trailer blocking eastbound lanes, current statements say. While the semi-trailer blocked eastbound lanes, Bryant's vehicle crashed into it.
As a result, Bryant succumbed to fatal injuries. No one else was reportedly injured. Kentucky State Police and the Logan County Sheriff's Office have yet to provide additional details about the crash, and it remains unclear if there are any pending charges or citations.
