KY man killed after pickup overturns

GRAVES COUNTY, KY (KFVS) -

A Fancy Farm man is dead following a crash on KY 1748 in Graves County, Kentucky.

The deadly crash happened around 10:15 a.m., just east of Pryorsburg.

According to the Kentucky State Police, 51-year-old Herbert D. Steppe was driving his Chevy pickup when his passenger side wheels dropped off the road. This caused his cargo to shift.

The truck overturned and the driver had to be extricated out of the vehicle.

The passenger had a seat belt on and was able to crawl out the side window.

Steppe was pronounced at the scene by the county coroner.

The Graves County sheriff's office, Mayfield-Graves EMS, fire and rescue, and the Wingo FD assisted at the scene.

The passenger was taken to Jackson Purchase Medical Center for treatment.

KY 1748 was rerouted for 1 1/2 hours.
