Barren County man dies in crash

Wintry weather apparently was a factor in the death of a 43-year-old Barren County man.

Barry D. Hughes of Cave City died Thursday when the pickup truck he was driving ran off a roadway covered with snow and ice and struck a tree, according to the Barren County sheriff's office.

The accident occurred shortly before 4 p.m. on Herbert Turner Road, about 8 miles northwest of Glasgow.

Hughes apparently lost control of his northbound 1999 Dodge Ram pickup truck.

The truck traveled into the southbound lane, then ran off the road and hit a tree. The victim, who was not wearing a seat belt, was pronounced dead at the scene, according to the sheriff's office.
