A Bardstown man was injured Thursday night in a single-vehicle accident.

According to a Nelson County Sherriff’s Office press release, deputies responded to Louisville Road near the intersection of Solitude Road to investigate an injury accident at about 10 p.m. Officers discovered William Russell, 27, was traveling northbound on a 2011 Suzuki motorcycle. Russell exited the roadway on his motorcycle and struck a tree. Russell was treated at the scene by Nelson County EMS and was later transported to the University Hospital for his injuries.

However, when contacted by The Kentucky Standard Friday, University Hospital said it did not have a patient by that name.
