SCOTT COUNTY, Ky. (WTVQ) – The Scott County Coroner’s Office has identified a contract worker who was killed earlier this week at the Toyota Manufacturing plant in Georgetown.

The coroner says 33-year-old Antwian Brifford, of Pikeville, died of blunt force trauma.

Brifford, who was an employee of Ryder Trucking, was killed Tuesday when he became pinned between his truck and a trailer.

The coroner says the preliminary investigation reveals Brifford didn’t put on the air brake when he exited the truck.

Brifford leaves behind three children, according to the coroner.

Funeral arrangements are pending.
