A Dry Ridge man was electrocuted Monday night as he was removing brush from a dump truck.
Kenneth Tyler Cummins, 23, died instantly when the dump bed truck he was working near either hit a power line or came in close enough contact with the line to cause the truck to be “electrified.”
Cummins and two other employees of Showplace Landscaping on U.S. 25 between Crittenden and Dry Ridge were emptying the truck around 5:30 p.m.
Grant County Coroner Marylee Willoby said Cummins was touching the truck when it moved forward.
