Dry Ridge man electrocuted

DRY RIDGE, KY (AP) - A central Kentucky man has been electrocuted in an accident at a landscaping business.

A Grant County official said 23-year-old Kenneth Tyler Cummins of Dry Ridge was helping unload a dump truck when the accident occurred on Monday.

The Lexington Herald-Leader reported coroner Marylee Willoby said the truck was parked under power lines with the bed fully tilted. When the truck was pulled forward, the bed brought down the lines, which fell onto Cummins, who was standing on the ground behind the truck.

An autopsy was being performed.
