A Carter County man is facing a murder charge after a wreck that killed a man.
Ricky D. Flannery, 49, of Olive Hill was charged Tuesday with murder and operating a vehicle under the influence.
The Carter County Sheriff's Department said the charges stem from a two-vehicle accident in which Allen Ray Tabor, 54, of Olive Hill was killed. The accident happened about 2 p.m. Tuesday on Ky. 174 near Olive Hill. The sheriff's department said the two trucks hit head-on.
Flannery was injured in the accident, treated at a local hospital and was then taken to the Carter County Detention Center. The cause of the accident is still under investigation.
The sheriff's department said it is waiting on lab results of the suspect's blood alcohol level. Flannery is expected to be in court Monday for a preliminary hearing.
