SCOTT COUNTY, Ky. (LEX 18)– A man is in critical condition following an accident on I-64 in Scott County.

It happened around 5:20 p.m. Thursday near the 69 mile marker.

Officials say the vehicle exited the roadway before flipping several times and ejecting a man. During the course of rotation it is believed tools exited an unsecured tool bag and became loose in the vehicle. The male is believed to not have been wearing his seat belt and fell on one of the tools, which hit him the back of the head.

He is currently at UK Hospital where his condition is listed as critical but stable.

Alcohol is not considered a factor in the collision.
