A Boyle County man was killed early this morning when his vehicle crashed into a garbage truck on U.S. 60 in Woodford County.
Michael Zirnheld, 49, of 1374 Quirks Run Road, died in the crash, which occurred about 6:30 a.m., said Woodford County Coroner Steve Ward.
Zirnheld was returning home from work at Kentucky Utilities in Lexington when his vehicle slammed into the back of a garbage truck stopped at the intersection of U.S. 60 and Pisgah Lane, near the landmark castle, Ward said.
"He did not brake, he did not slow down," Ward said.
Zirnheld's survivors include his wife, Rita, and three daughters.
