Man killed in wreck on Craft Creek


CRAFT CREEK – A Magoffin County man was killed in single-vehicle wreck on Craft Creek Monday morning.

Just after 6 a.m. on Monday, July 15, Kentucky State Police was called to a single-vehicle crash on Craft Creek, with the operator unresponsive when crews arrived.

Troopers determined a vehicle operated by Joe Allen, 45 years old, of Middle Fork, was traveling south on Craft Creek and failed to negotiate a left-hand turn. The vehicle left the roadway traveling over the embankment. 

KSP Trooper Stratton is leading the accident investigation. 

Allen’s full obituary can be found on page A4 of this week’s issue of the Independent.
