Man killed when vehicle he was working on runs over him

HINDMAN, Ky. (AP) — Kentucky State Police say a Knott County man died Sunday afternoon when the vehicle he was working on rolled over him.

According to police, troopers and emergency workers were dispatched to the Pippa Passes community at about 12:30 p.m. after Post 13 received a call about a man run over by a vehicle.

Troopers found Steve Halcomb underneath a Dodge Durango sport utility vehicle. They determined that Mr. Halcomb had been working underneath the SUV, when it rolled off of a ramp and dragged him down the driveway onto Trace Caney Rd.

Knott County Deputy Coroner Donnie Salmons pronounced Halcomb deceased at the scene at approximately 1:04 p.m.

No foul play is suspected, and no autopsy will be performed. The death remains under investigation by state police.
