One person died in a Nicholas County tractor accident late Tuesday night.
The accident happened on a farm off Author Road. A helicopter was initially called to the scene, but the Nicholas County coroner later confirmed he was called out.
Just before 11 p.m., the victim's daughter-in-law told LEX 18 that crews had not removed the body.
Dispatchers say the scene was finally cleared early Wednesday morning.
Officials have not released the victim's identity.
Kentucky State Police continue to investigate.
