A Kentucky man is dead after a fatal machinery accident on Friday. According to Grayson County police, a 64-year-old man was struck by a Caterpillar bulldozer near the intersection of Pleasant Run Road and Green Farms Road. An emergency call was made to authorities around 6:45 Friday night. The Grayson County police and the Falls of Rough Fire and Rescue responded to the emergency. They found the man dead at the scene of the accident, and it was confirmed by the Deputy Grayson County Coroner.

Police believe the man was attempting to unload the bulldozer from a trailer when it fatally struck him. When the Grayson County Deputies examined the trailer, it was in the unloading position, and the bulldozer was several feet away. The preliminary investigation points to the bulldozer accidentally rolling off the trailer. A more extensive investigation will be conducted.
