GEORGETOWN, Ky. (WTVQ) – A Cynthiana man has died after a crash in Scott County Wednesday.
According to the Scott County Sheriff, Ricky King, 48, was the passenger in a truck that rolled over on Newtown Pike.
The sheriff says the driver, King’s son, swerved to avoid a deer running across the road, when he lost control of the truck and it rolled over several times.
King, who the sheriff says was not wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash, was taken to the hospital, where he died Thursday.
King’s son was also taken to the hospital, but has since been released.
According to the sheriff’s office, wet roads also may have been a factor in the crash.
