SCOTT COUNTY, Ky. (LEX 18)– The man killed in an accident at Toyota earlier in the week has been identified.

The Scott County Coroner confirms that 33-year-old Antwian Brifford, of Pikeville, died from blunt force trauma to the body.

Brifford, an employee of Ryder Trucking, was killed Tuesday when he exited his truck and did not put on the air brake. He was crushed between the tractor and trailer.

The coroner said he was there for at least an hour before he was found by a coworker.

Funeral arrangements are pending, but they will be held in Alabama. He will be buried there as well.
