A Fordsville man was killed in a motorcycle accident Sunday evening on Kentucky 54.

According to the Daviess County Sheriff's report, Brandon Coppage, 38, died after his motorcycle collided head on at around 6:49 p.m. with a Ford F-250 driven by Megan Sutherland of Owensboro who was traveling west bound in the 11000 block of Kentucky Highway 54.

The report said Coppage failed to negotiate a curve causing him to leave his lane and into the truck's path. The report added that Coppage was not wearing a helmet at the time of the accident.
