Authorities say a Kentucky transportation worker has died while plowing snow-covered highways, bringing the total number of deaths from the massive snowstorm hitting the U.S. to at least 11.
The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet says in a statement that Christopher Adams died Saturday in Christian County.
The statement says Adams called a supervisor about 5:50 a.m., saying his snow plow had slid into a ditch along Kentucky Route 115. When the supervisor arrived, Adams was slumped over in his truck seat and unresponsive.
An ambulance was called to the scene. Paramedics called a coroner.
Officials say the 44-year-old Adams had been working since about midnight. His family has been notified, but a cause of death has not been released.
