Wayne man dies in crash

A Wayne County man was killed in a car crash Tuesday, state police said in a news release.

Virgil G. Gregory, 74, of Monticello was driving west on Ky. 92 when his 2004 Pontiac Grand Prix dropped off the shoulder of the road, police said.

Gregory tried to steer back onto the road but overcorrected, crossing the road and hitting a ditch before careening back across the road.

Gregory was pronounced dead at the scene. He was not wearing a seat belt, police said.

The wreck happened eight miles east of Monticello about 8:40 a.m.

Alcohol and drug use were not suspected as factors, police said.
