LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - A Kentucky coroner has identified a worker who was killed when his dump truck came into contact with high-voltage power lines at a construction site.

The Fayette County coroner’s office says in a news release 61-year-old William Everman was electrocuted Friday in Lexington.

WKYT-TV reports Everman was moving debris into a pit and had raised the dump truck’s bed, causing it to come into contact with power lines.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration is investigating.
