HUSTONVILLE - A Hustonville man was struck and killed in his garage Wednesday morning in what a Lincoln County Deputy coroner called "a bizarre accident."
Avery Jeffers, 81, of KY 2141, was pronounced dead at the scene after James D Jones, 50, of Stanford, lost control of his Chevy pickup on a curve and drove through the Jeffers' detached garage and struck Jeffers before coming to a stop in the back yard, reported state police.
According to authorities, Jones was traveling south on 2141 at approximately 10:15 a.m. when he lost control of the truck, drove down an embankment and through a fence line two-tenths of a mile north of Hustonville. Jones' vehicle proceeded through the garage where it struck Jeffers and carried him through the other side of the structure and into the yard. "We got the call from the wife, who advised that a pickup truck had run through the garage and her husband was laying in the field behind the house," said Jeff Crow, Lincoln County dispatcher.
