Jacob K. Gidcumb, 20, of Russellville, was a passenger in a 1997 Saturn east on Ky. 100 when an altercation reportedly began between himself and another occupant in the vehicle - Marshall W. Riley, 25, also of Russellville.
During the altercation, the driver lost control of the vehicle and ran off the right side of the road, hitting mailboxes before the car wedged between a tree and concrete culvert.
Gidcumb and Riley, along with a second passenger - Catherine F. McMeen, 18 also of Russellville - sustained various injuries in the initial collision.
According to a police report, the occupants exited the vehicle through the car's windows on their own.
After leaving the car, Gidcumb reportedly went onto the roadway and laid down while complaining of a head injury.
Moments later, a 2005 Dodge van, occupied by William (65) and Carol (61) Devoss of Russellville was traveling east on Ky. 100 and ran over Gidcumb, who was laying in their traffic lane.
Gidcumb was taken to Logan Memorial Hospital by EMS where he was pronounced dead.
No other details are being released at this time due to the ongoing investigation.
The incident is being investigated by Detective Charles Dauley of the Logan County Sheriff's Department and the collisions are being reconstructed by Deputy Jonathan Shackleford.
Also assisting in the incident was Sheriff Wallace Whittaker, Deputies McMill and Mahan, the Russellville Rural Fire Department, Medical Center EMS, Logan Memorial Hospital ER staff, the Kentucky State Police, the Logan County Burden Bearers and the Logan County Coroner's Office.
