Lexington Man Killed In Boating Accident

A night on the lake turns deadly for a Lexington man, after his boat crashes into an island.

The accident happened around midnight near the "Cemetery Island" area of Lake Cumberland... in Russell County.

The coroner says 44-year old William Todd Jackson did not see the island until moments before he reached it. Jackson apparently tried to swerve out of the way, but the boat hit the island, flipped, and then landed on top of him.

A woman on the boat was thrown off and suffered only a broken arm.
