Somerset man killed in motorcycle wreck

Apr. 22—A Somerset man was killed Sunday afternoon in a single-vehicle motorcycle wreck.

The Pulaski County Coroner's office stated that Daniel T. South, 63, was pronounced dead around 4 p.m. Sunday at the scene of a wreck, which took place on Ky. 196 in Nancy.

The Coroner's Office initially had difficulty finding next of kin for South, leading to D.J. Hutchinson of the Coroners Office to ask the public for assistance.

However, by 4 p.m. Monday, the office was in contact with South's family members, he said.

The search for family was impeded due to South's phone being destroyed in the wreck, making it impossible to search for information through it, he said.
