A man is dead following a motorcycle crash.

The collision occurred five miles west of Lebanon on St. Joe Road at 12:35 p.m. Sunday.

Police say Russell P. Veatch, 23, of Finley Kentucky was traveling east on St. Joe Road, operating a 2007 Harley Davidson motorcycle.  Veatch was following a 1997 Acura operated by 17-year-old Skylar M. Godbey of Raywick, KY.

According to authorities, Godbey was slowing to make a left turn into a driveway when Veatch struck the Acura in the rear, throwing him from the motorcycle. Veatch was not wearing a helmet and was airlifted to University Hospital in Louisville where he was later pronounced dead.

Godbey was wearing a seatbelt and was not injured.
