CHRISTOPHER, Ky. (WYMT) - Troopers with Kentucky State Police are investigating a crash that resulted in the death of a Perry County man.

Troopers say they were sent to KY-451 in the Christopher community around 5:00 Monday evening. They say evidence indicated that the driver was driving on KY-451 when his car crossed over into the northbound lane and off the shoulder of the roadway before hitting an embankment, causing it to flip over.

Medical crews were able to free the victim from the vehicle and transport him to Hazard ARH, where he was pronounced dead from injuries sustained in the crash.

The driver was wearing his seat belt. This crash remains under investigation. The victim’s family has asked us to withhold his name until the rest of the family can be notified.
