BOONE COUNTY, Ky. (LEX 18)– A man is dead following an ATV accident in Verona.

Sheriff’s officials say it happened around 7:50 p.m. Thursday on Miller Owens Road.

Deputies responded to a call of what appeared to be an ATV accident that claimed the rider’s life on a farm.

Nicolas Morales, 50 of Walton, was located by a neighbor face down in a creek with an A.T.V. on top of him. Initial indications are that Morales crossed the creek and started up a steep embankment when the vehicle rolled over on him trapping him in the creek.

Morales reportedly helps take care of the property and was last heard from just after midnight May 17. Next of kin have been notified.
