KSP Says Man Dies In Crash, Fleeing Police

JUNCTION CITY, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky State Police say a man
fleeing from a city police officer has been killed when his vehicle
crashed.

Troopers said 44-year-old David K. Bugg of Harrodsburg was
trying to outrun Junction City Police Officer David Prather after a
domestic violence call early Sunday.

Troopers said Bugg's sport utility vehicle was on Kentucky Route
2141 and had crossed into Lincoln County when it ran off the road,
through a plank fence, through a creek and into a field.

The Lexington Herald-Leader reported the KSP said Bugg was
declared dead at the scene. An autopsy will be performed.

Junction City is about 35 miles southwest of Lexington.
