fatal accidentDAVIESS COUNTY, Ky. (10/8/18) — A 22-year-old man died after suffering injuries from hitting his head on the pavement after being on the bumper of a moving vehicle.

Daviess County Sheriff’s Office investigated the incident that occurred at approximately 1:30 a.m. Sunday in the 7100 block of Kentucky 815. DCSO believes Hunter Henderson of Veach Road, Owensboro, was riding on the rear bumper of a truck that was being moved while the driver was unaware.

The truck traveled onto Kentucky 815 for approximately 100 feet and then into a driveway, said OCSO. Witnesses reported Henderson either fell or jumped from the rear bumper and struck his head on the pavement. A registered nurse at the scene administered immediate medical attention while emergency dispatch was called.

DCSO said Henderson was transported to Owensboro Health Regional Hospital for head injuries and died at 11:14 a.m.
