Alot of you remember Kenny from Roy G Eversole. Here is the report WYMT gave.

The investigation continues into a fatal accident in Breathitt County involving a state trooper and a pedestrian from Jackson.

Trooper Michael Fogleman was on his way to Hazard on Highway 15 when he struck Kenny Sizemore, who later died from his injuries.

Many around Jackson knew Sizemore, and were shaken up to hear of his death this morning. They call him a kind-hearted person, who made a friend everywhere he went.

Bonnie Ratliff says when she hears Kenny Sizemore's name, she remembers two things.

"His laugh and his smile," Ratliff said.

Ratliff used to work at the Senior Citizens Center downtown, and Sizemore would stop by almost everyday.

"He would open doors for people if he could. He was a good, honest person, and he's going to be missed by everyone," Ratliff said.

Sizemore walked everywhere along Highway 15, from Dollar General to I.G.A., and all the way to the Shell. He lived just up the hill and across the highway from this Carquest in Jackson.

Workers say he would stop by often to hang out, especially on Fridays for the car shows.

"Every Friday we'd look for him. About 3:00, he'd come down the hill to cross the road," Greg Hensley said.

Hensley says Sizemore will be missed at this week's show by everyone at the store.

"It'd be different. Things go on, but we'll sure remember him that's for sure," Hensley said.

Ratliff says it is still hard to believe Sizemore is gone.

"It broke my heart a little bit. It was kinda depressing and it's hard to realize that it's even true," Ratliff said.

Kenneth "Kenny" Sizemore was 38 years old.

No charges are filed in the collision, and officers are still working on reconstructing the scene from last night.

Jackson man dies after being struck by police cruiser
Herald-Leader Staff Report - Herald-Leader staff report A 38-year-old Jackson man died Sunday night after being struck by a Kentucky State Police cruiser, said Monday.

Michael Fogleman, a five-year state police veteran, was driving the cruiser that struck Kenneth R. Sizemore on Ky. 15 South in Jackson, police said. The Hazard state police post received a call about the accident about 10 p.m. Fogleman was traveling from the Morehead state police post, where he is assigned, to Hazard, where he is on special detail with a marijuana-eradication team.

Breathitt County Coroner George Griffith pronounced Sizemore dead at Kentucky River Medical Center in Jackson.

The wreck occurred within the Jackson city limits across the street from Carquest Auto Parts, Kentucky State Police Lt. David Jude said. State police declined to release more details about what happened because collision reconstruction officials were investigating.

Remember Kenny well and him hanging out at the Pavilion and around the pantry shelf wearing his red Navajo hat and always had low riding baggy pants. Kenny was always happy and enjoyed being around people. Kenny was a special young man. He was missed after moving from Hazard and was sad to hear about his accident in 2010
