JAMES COCANOUGHER
GREG JONES
Local Chiropractor
Killed In Winchester
Auto Accident
A well-known local citizen was killed in a car accident early Thursday morning,
Sept. 21.
Dr. James W. Cocanougher, commonly known as "Doc", was 61 years old and lived at

been a fixture in the community since 1959.
Born August 17, 1934, in Washington County, he was the son of the late Joseph
Hartford and Sarah Frances Naylor Cocanougher.
According to Clark County Deputy Sheriff Steve Birch, Cocanougher was traveling
eastbound on US 60, west of Winchester, at approximately 5:45 a.m., when he
apparently crossed the center line into oncoming traffic, striking head- on a
vehicle driven by Greg Jones, 29, of Winchester, who was on his way to work.
Both drivers were killed instantly.
Due to problems concerning road construction in the area of the accident,
official police reports will be delayed. However, according to Birch,
"...alcohol was in (Cocanougher's) vehicle and was present at the scene."
Clark County Coroner, David Jacobs stated that preliminary autopsy reports on
the deceased should be available within two to three days, but that verified
toxicology findings would take two to three weeks to be completed.
Cocanougher had been arrested in Garrard County on Sunday night, Sept. 17,
following an alcohol-related incident on Herrington Lake.
According to published reports, at approximately 10:00 p.m., Cocanougher came
ashore near Hunter Drive in the Woodlawn Subdivision in northern Garrard County,
wet and very incoherent, telling local residents he had sunk a boat on the lake.
During investigation of the incident, State Police determined Cocanougher to be
under the influence and proceeded to remand him into custody. Reports state that
Cocanougher became belligerent and refused to cooperate with police, resulting
in his being charged with both Alcohol Intoxication in a Public Place and
Resisting Arrest.
Following his arrest, Cocanougher had been lodged in the Lincoln County Jail on
$50,000 bond until Wednesday, when he was released on bail.
Cocanougher is survived by one son, William Mitchell Cocanougher of Harrodsburg;
