A Man Has Been Killed In An Accident On U.S. 23 In Floyd Co

A former Pikeville boxer has been killed after a crash in Floyd Co.

Police say 62-year old Mayfield Pennington's Corvette was hit by a tractor trailer Tuesday on U.S. 23 in Floyd County.

It happened just before 3 o'clock Tuesday afternoon on U.S. 23 near Betsy Layne High School.

Crews worked with a crane to move oil tanks away from the scene before they could lift an 18-wheeler off the Corvette.

Kentucky State Police say it will be sometime before they can confirm what exactly caused the accident.

The county coroner says this is the fourth vehicle fatality already this month in Floyd County.
