A Whitesburg resident died Easter morning when his SUV crashed into a creek, according to Kentucky State Police.
Larry C. Stidham, 28, was driving north on U.S. 119 at Payne Gap when his 1994 Ford Explorer left the road and collided with a guardrail, a fence and a utility pole before turning over. The vehicle went over an embankment and came to rest in the creek, police said.
Stidham, who was not wearing a seat belt, was thrown from the vehicle and trapped under it, police said.
He was pronounced dead at the scene.
