Posted: Updated:

FRANKFORT, KY (WAVE) – The identity of a man who was killed when a dump truck overturned and landed on his vehicle Thursday has been released.

According to Kendra Wilson with Kentucky State Police, around 11 a.m., Jonathan Denning was driving a 2013 Freightliner dump truck eastbound on U.S. 60 when the tread on one of the tires came off, causing him to lose control and go into the westbound lanes where he crashed head-on into a silver 1999 Ford F150 driven by James Walker.

The impact caused both vehicles to go off the roadway and strike a culvert before the dump truck overturned and landed on the pickup.

According to the Shelby County coroner, Walker, who was wearing his seatbelt, was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash.

Denning was taken to the University of Louisville Hospital. His condition has not been released.
