An assistant supervisor at the Danville Water Plant was killed early Saturday morning as he was delivering his Lexington Herald-Leader newspaper route, Boyle County Sheriff's deputies said.
Carroll "Lee" St. John, 48, of Alexander Drive, Danville, died in the single-vehicle accident on U.S. 127 at the northern limits of Junction City, deputies said. His 1994 Nissan pick-up was traveling west on Old Hustonville Road at 4:24 a.m. when it traveled through a stop sign, crossed four lanes of traffic and struck a rock embankment.
He was not wearing a seat belt, police said.
Boyle County EMS was dispatched and called for the coroner after arriving on the scene. The coroner's office is still investigating.
