A Central Kentucky man was electrocuted Monday afternoon while unloading a dump truck at a landscaping business, Grant County Coroner Marylee Willoby said.
Kenneth Tyler Cummins, 23, of Dry Ridge was helping employees unload the truck about 5:30 p.m. at Showplace Landscaping in Grant County, officials said.
The truck was parked underneath high voltage power lines, and the bed was fully tilted, according to the Grant County Sheriff's Office. When the truck moved forward, the bed touched the power lines and the lines fell on top of Cummins, who was standing behind the vehicle.
Cummins was pronounced dead at the scene, Willoby said. An autopsy was being performed Tuesday.
