A Garrard County man died after his sport-utility vehicle crashed into a Nicholasville business Monday night.

Ashton Boyd, 24, was driving inbound over a hill on East Maple Street about 10:45 p.m. when his vehicle went off the road on a curve, hit a utility pole and crashed into Faulkner-Fain Co., Nicholasville police officer Kevin Grimes said.

Boyd was taken to a local hospital, where he later died, Grimes said.

Speed was probably a factor in the crash, and investigators are determining whether alcohol was involved, Grimes said.
