 Friday, November 4, 2011


A man was killed Wednesday evening when a dump truck knocked him from Interstate 275 in Kenton County. The Fort Wright Police Department said a dump truck merged into the left lane as traffic slowed due to construction. When the dump truck merged, it struck a Ford Escort causing it to go over a concrete barrier and on the ground below near Ky. 17. "And then the next thing you know, people in front of me are stopped and running towards the bridge to go down the embankment, and hollering ’He went off the side,’" said Mark Folino, who witnessed the crash.
