Marshall E. Wages of Radcliff was found dead after a single-vehicle wreck in Grayson County.
Wages’ vehicle left the road and overturned Saturday, coming to rest on its top on the south side of Bear Creek Road, according to a report from Grayson County Sheriff’s Deputy Bryan Hammons. When Hammons arrived at the scene, Wages didn’t have a pulse and was trapped in the truck.
Leitchfield Fire Department was called to extricate Wages. Grayson County EMS and Kentucky State Police also responded.
Grayson County Coroner Joe Brad Hudson said Wages likely suffered a heart attack before he lost control of the vehicle and it flipped.
“He was seat belted in and was uninjured,” Hudson said.
Hammons and Hudson reported Wages complained of being dizzy a couple of times and broke out in a cold sweat before leaving a residence on Bear Creek Road that was a quarter mile from the scene.
“Pending a toxicology report, we are pretty certain it was a heart attack,” Hudson said.
Hudson said Wages had been out hunting that morning and had killed a deer, which was found at the scene of the wreck. The deer was taken by Wages’ family.
