Kentucky Man Dies after Truck Rolls Over Him in Pike Co.

Indiana State Police say a Madisonville, Kentucky man died Thursday evening when his pick-up truck rolled over him in Pike County.

A nearby resident found the truck on top of 72-year-old Lonnie Frederick on County Road 75 South near County Road 325 West.

Police say Frederick apparently pulled over to the side of the road for some unknown reason, got out of the truck without putting the vehicle in park, and walked to the front of the truck.

The vehicle then started to roll and ran over him.

Frederick was pronounced dead at the scene by the Pike County Coroner.

An autopsy conducted Friday concluded Frederick’s death was accidental.
