Alcohol might be a contributing factor in a car accident that killed a Mount Sterling man, according to Kentucky State Police.
Stacy M. Bratton, 40, was traveling west on U.S. 460 in Montgomery County just before 10:30 p.m. Monday when he entered the eastbound entrance ramp to Interstate 64, state police said in a news release.
Bratton lost control of his 2002 Chevy TrailBlazer on the entrance ramp and hit a utility pole. Bratton, who was not wearing a seat belt, was thrown from the vehicle, police said.
Bratton was pronounced dead at the scene. The accident is under investigation.
