A Lexington man was killed Thursday night when his car crashed into the rear of a dump truck in Nicholasville, the Jessamine County coroner said.
Coroner Michael Hughes identified the victim as Anthony Todd Davidson, 48.
Davidson died shortly after 9 p.m. near the intersection of U.S. 27 and Industry Road, Hughes said.
According to preliminary indications, the dump truck, which was towing a forklift on a trailer, was turning from Industry Road onto northbound U.S. 27 when the car struck it from behind.
The car was wedged under the truck, authorities said.
No one in the truck was injured.
An investigation is continuing.
