Kentucky Driver Killed When Water Truck Overturns

FISHERVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A 70-year-old Shelby County man is dead after the water truck he was driving overturned as he was delivering water to a farm in the Fisherville area, east of Louisville. But it was not the initial accident that caused the fatality.

Jefferson County Deputy Coroner Jack Arnold says James Glascoe was turning from the farm's driveway on Bradbe Road onto Routt Road late yesterday morning when the rear axle slipped off the side of the road into a ditch. Arnold says Glascoe got out of the truck, apparently to assess the damage, and the vehicle then fell over and crushed him.
