PADUCAH, Ky. (AP) —
Authorities say a Kentucky transportation worker has died while plowing snow-covered highways in Christian County.
The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet says in a statement that Christopher Adams died Saturday.
The statement says Adams called a supervisor at about 5:50 a.m., saying that his snow plow had slid into a ditch along Kentucky Route 115. When the supervisor arrived, Adams was slumped over in his truck seat and unresponsive.
An ambulance was called to the scene. Paramedics then called a coroner.
Officials said the 44-year-old Adams had been working since about midnight. His family has been notified, but a cause of death has not been released.
On Thursday, 59-year-old Billy R. Stevens, of Williamsburg, died when his car collided with a salt truck on state Route 92 in Whitley County.
