Staff Report

A Munfordville, Kentucky man died in a crash in Grayson County Friday morning.

According to Grayson County Coroner Joe Brad Hudson, for unknown reasons, a 2004 Chevrolet pickup truck, driven by 64-year-old Dennis R. Rucker, of Munfordville, Kentucky, veered off the roadway, went over an embankment, and struck a tree at the 13000 block of Hwy 88 at 7:30 a.m. Friday morning.

Rucker was extricated from the vehicle by the Wax Fire Department and pronounced deceased by Hudson.

Hwy 88 was closed down for about an hour and a half as a result of the accident, and, Hudson said, alcohol did not appear to be a factor in the crash.

The accident is being investigated by Grayson County Sheriff's Office Chief Deputy Jarrod Mudd.
