OKOLONA, Ky. (WDRB) -- Funeral services were held Saturday afternoon for an Okolona teen killed in a motorcycle crash last week.

Dakota Grider, 19, died three days before Christmas.

The Bullitt County Sheriff's Office says a driver was not paying attention when he turned in front of the biker at Preston Highway and Kentucky Highway 245.

Grider's parents came upon the accident just minutes after it happened.

The teen recently became part of the Army's 20th Special Forces Group.

His funeral included full military honors and a 21-gun salute.
