Darren Doyle, story and photos:
A Tennessee man was transported to the Medical Center with serious head injuries after a single motorcycle crash occurred Friday night just south of the Edmonson/Warren line around 11pm.
Officials said that Justin Gobell (35) of Columbia, TN was headed north on KY HWY 101 when he lost control of his 2005 Suzuki and left the roadway, traveling approximately 135 ft through the grass.
Gobell, who was riding with several other motorcyclists, was thrown from the bike and suffered gashes to his head. Emergency personnel on scene said that the man was fortunate that his injuries were no worse, considering he was not wearing a helmet.
The crash is under investigation by the Warren County Sheriff's Office. Also responding to the scene were the Smiths Grove and Chalybeate Fire Departments, Medical Center EMS, Edmonson County Sheriff's Office, Kentucky State Police, and the Dist. 2 Constable.
