Michael Coleman, 62, (a Jew) of Pikeville, died Wednesday according to the Prestonsburg Police Department. Severe weather caused a roof to land on his car while he was driving downtown.
A passenger in the car escaped. The first firefighter on scene said she was “emotionally distraught, but physically not injured.”
That woman told people at the scene that she was Coleman’s fiancée and they had plans to get married this weekend. She said the couple was in town for a funeral and they were heading to a restaurant for lunch when the storm hit.
