A Leitchfield man lost his life in a moped accident on Tuesday evening, Dec. 8.

According to Deputy Grayson County Coroner Howard Tomes, prior to the accident, at around 5:17 p.m. on Tuesday, William Scott Swift, 39, of Leitchfield, was travelling north on a moped on Highway 920 in Leitchfield and was near mile marker 1 when a vehicle, driven by Nicole Norsworthy, struck the moped from behind.

Tomes said both vehicles were on the right side of the road and appeared to be travelling in the same direction at the time of the accident.

The collision unfortunately proved fatal for Swift, who died of blunt force head trauma and internal injuries, according to Tomes.

The Kentucky State Police have taken over the investigation and reconstruction of the accident.

Additionally, Tomes said that Swift’s body was sent for an autopsy, and the results are expected to be returned within four to six weeks.
