Truck hits, kills 2 tree trimmers


Kentucky State Police have charged the driver of a truck that ran off a Pike County highway, striking and killing two tree-trimming company employees.

The victims are 20-yearold Paul Williamson of Harold and 32-year-old Kevin D. Jones of Dorton.

Police said a tractor-trailer truck driven by 44-yearold independent trucker Arthur Davis of Blackwood, S.C., struck the men beside U.S. 460 on Monday. Davis told police he couldn’t stop the truck, which was hauling heavy equipment, after coming down a hill.

Davis was cited on several charges including having no driver’s license.
