A Carter County man was killed in a collision with a tractor-trailer on Monday after he apparently lost control on a slick road, according to Kentucky State Police.
George T. Burton, 64, of Grayson was driving north on KY 9 in Lewis County when his 1998 Lincoln Town Car crossed into the opposite lane into the path of a truck driven by Keith Bloomfield, 42 of Vanceburg, police said.
Burton died at the scene.
Police believe Burton lost control on the snow-covered road while heading into a right turn and slid across the road, according to the release.
Bloomfield was released after treatment at an area hospital.
