HENDERSON CO., Ky. (WFIE) - Officials say part of Highway 359 was shut down due to a single-vehicle motorcycle crash in Henderson County, just outside of Smith Mills.

It happened around 7:30 Tuesday night when authorities say a motorcycle rider ran off the road and crashed into a ditch.

Authorities say a medical helicopter was called to the crash. The rider was flown to St. Vincent Hospital in Evansville, but deputies say the victim later died.

They say he’s now been identified as 46-year-old Joshua Dean of Owensboro.

The road was shut down while crews worked the accident but is now back open.
