A 40-year-old man was killed early Tuesday in a one-car crash in Menifee County, authorities said.
Ricky Dean "Dino" Prater of Denniston in Menifee County died in the crash, county Coroner Melody Smallwood said.
Prater was driving a Chevrolet Malibu east on U.S. 460 when the car left the road on the right side, then went across the road to the left and struck a tree, said Menifee County Sheriff Toby Wells.
The crash happened at 2:30 a.m. Tuesday near the Means community, west of Frenchburg.
Prater was scheduled to start a new job Wednesday with a trucking company, Smallwood said. He is survived by his wife, Sandy, and four children.
