MOUNT OLIVET — Robertson County School will be closed Friday for the funeral of a Robertson County man killed in a Lexington accident on Monday.

According to officials with the Fayette County Coroner’s Office, around noon on Monday, 46-year-old Terry Burden was killed due to blunt force trauma from a loose flat bed in the 3600 block of Georgetown Road.

Officials said a trailer came loose from a semi and crashed into two separate cars, killing Burden and another man, 87-year-old Raymond Gay.

The Lexington Police Department is investigating the accident.

RCS Superintendent Sanford Holbrook said the Robertson County community was shocked to hear of the news.

“Terry was a 1989 graduate from Deming High School and an active member of our school community,” he said. “His son, Mason, was a part of our ball team, and even though Mason has graduated, Terry continued to support our school.”

Holbrook said many of the students would spend time at Burden’s home on the weekends.

“It was the place to be for many of the kids,” he said. “Terry, and his wife, Tina, would have the kids over, cook out, play games and just give them a place to go. For the kids who didn’t have a father in their life, he would treat them like his own. Terry was a part of our family.”

According to Holbrook, due to the number of people expected to attend Burden’s funeral, the service will be held at RCS on Friday at 1 p.m. The school will close early on Thursday and remain closed through Friday.

“We thought it would be a nice thing to do for them,” he said. “Our sincerest sympathies go out to the Burden family.”
