Walton Man Dies In Workplace Accident

(COLD SPRING, KY) -- A Walton man has died following a tragic accident in the workplace.

Police were called to Alexandria Pike across from Speedway Super America at 9:30 Wednesday morning for a report of a person being run over by a truck.

Upon arrival, police found Kevin Alexander, 45, of Walton, lying on the ground between a truck and a trailer owned by Brass Eagle Excavation, of Florence. Paramedics confirmed Alexander was dead at the scene.

According to the Cold Spring Police Department, the driver of the truck, Ronald Draper, 64, of Florence, was pulling a bulldozer when he noticed trouble with the brakes on the truck. He pulled to the side of the road, where another company vehicle, driven by Alexander, pulled behind him. Alexander checked the brakes, then asked Draper to pull the vehicle forward so he could check the brakes further.

After Draper moved the truck forward, he got out of the vehicle and found Alexander between the truck and the trailer.

Both men were employees of Brass Eagle Excavation. The company has notified Alexander's family.

An autopsy will be performed on Alexander. The incident is still under investigation.
