GRAVES COUNTY, KY (KFVS) -

A Gilbertsville, Kentucky man is in the hospital in critical condition following a motorcycle vs. fertilizer spreader crash in Graves County.

The Sheriff's Office says it happened on the afternoon of Saturday, April 15th and involved 32-year-old Josh Hudspeth, who was riding a motorcycle on KY 464 near Brittain Lane.

He was behind the spreader when it made a left turn - that's when Hudspeth tried to pass it, and ended up crashing into it.

Hudspeth suffered multiple injuries, including serious head and facial wounds; he was airlifted to a hospital in Nashville, where he is listed in critical condition.
