A deputy warden at Little Sandy Correctional Complex in Elliott County died Saturday after a motorcycle accident in Rowan County.
Frederick Micah Wilson, 42, of West Liberty was pronounced dead at the scene on Ky. 801 near Cave Run Lake, said Rowan County coroner John Northcutt.
A 14-year-old daughter who was a passenger on the bike with Wilson was treated for minor injuries at St. Claire Regional Medical Center in Morehead and released, Northcutt said.
The accident happened at about 2:15 p.m. Saturday near the Cave Run Pro Shop on 801.

Kentucky State Police said Wilson was driving a 2005 Harley Davidson that was northbound on 801. A Dodge pickup driven James M. Sosbe of Cynthiana attempted to make a left turn in front of the motorcycle.
Wilson attempted to stop but the motorcycle started to slide, spilling Wilson and the girl, state police said.
Wilson had helped open the Little Sandy Correctional Complex in 2005, according to the Kentucky Department of Corrections Web site for the facility. The medium-security prison at Sandy Hook has more than 1,000 inmates.
