Boone County Sheriff's Department
(Verona, Ky.) - A tow truck driver is recovering and in stable condition after a crash in southern Boone County Monday morning.
William Tagget, 50, was driving on Kentucky 14-Verona Mudlick Road between Inverness Road and Porter Road when he lost control of his 1980 Ford rollback tow truck at about 9:50 a.m.
The truck travelled through a fence and rolled over multiple times.
Phi Air Medical was originally called for air care but had to decline to transport Tagget because he was covered in diesel fuel. He would be taken to University Hospital in Cincinnati by Verona EMS ambulance.
The crash is under investigation by the Boone County Sheriff’s Department Accident Reconstruction Unit.
