Cynthiana and Harrison County emergency responders converged on a Cynthiana residence at approximately 5 p.m. Monday afternoon when dispatchers reported a potentially serious motorcycle injury accident.

According to Cynthiana Police Officer John Bright, Thomas Ware was involved in a solo accident involving one of his motorcycles.

According to Bright, the 911 call said that Ware had been thrown over the handlebars of the motorcycle and had suffered some level of head trauma.

Because of the location of the Ware home on U.S. 27 North, there was a question about whether the home was located in Harrison County or within Cynthiana city limits, Bright said.

“I really didn’t know if it was in the county or city. We [emergency responders] knew someone was hurt, so we just all responded,” Bright said.

When Bright arrived on the scene, he said that the sheriff and deputies were already on the scene. Cynthiana Fire and Rescue EMTs arrived soon after.

Bright said that when he arrived on the scene, officers observed the head trauma Ware had suffered and immobilized his head and neck as a precaution against further injury. However, Bright also said that Ware was conscious and aware of his surroundings at all times.

Once secured in a stretcher, Ware was transported to a hospital in Lexington for evaluation.

 Ware was treated for his injuries and released the next day.
