A man was found dead Sunday morning after his truck apparently missed a curve, struck two trees and went over an embankment out of the sight of other motorists.
Richard Watson, 32, of Mountain City, Tenn., was found dead about 10 a.m. on Sunday along Ky. 8 in Bracken County, according to Kentucky State Police. That part of the road also is known as Mary Ingles Highway.
Speed was a factor in the accident, police said, but they are not sure when the accident happened. It is under investigation by KSP.
