Eubank resident dies after moped is struck by vehicle

Somerset —

The victim in a recent crash on North U.S. 27 in Eubank has passed away.
Shane Redden, 41, of Eubank, passed away Monday following the collision. Morris & Hislope Funeral Home confirmed the death to the Commonwealth Journal.
The accident occurred at 5:52 p.m. near Eubank Plaza on U.S. 27. Redden was operating a moped, and pulled out in front of a southbound Nissan pick-up truck, driven by Adam Stone, 30, of Hacker Road in Somerset, according to the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department.
Redden was wearing a helmet at the time of the accident. Weather was not a factor, and alcohol was not an apparent factor in the crash, according to the sheriff’s department, which stated that Stone couldn’t avoid Redden when he pulled out.
Eubank Fire Department assisted at the scene. Norman Rutheford, Eubank Fire Chief, said that Redden was treated at the scene and transported to Lake Cumberland Regional Hospital. He was later taken to the University of Kentucky Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.
See Redden’s obituary on page A3 of this edition.
