Teen dies in fiery crash in Lexington

A teenager died early Sunday morning in a fiery crash on Russell Cave Road.

Lexington Police say Kevin Sipple, 18, was driving his Dodge Ram pickup truck north on Russell Cave shortly before 7 a.m. Sunday when he lost control of the vehicle near Dixiana Domino Road. Police say he was on his way to work at a horse farm, though they could not say which one.

The truck slammed into a tree and burst into flames, police said. Police say the cause of the accident was a combination of high speed and slick driving conditions.

Sipple was pronounced dead at the scene.
