If Tom McAnelly had not made a trip to the kitchen early Saturday morning, Willis Milburn might not be alive today, said Spencer County Deputy Gordan Miles.
Looking out a window, McAnelly told police that he could see head lights shining in the woods near his house. Far from where they should normally be seen along KY 44/Mt. Washington Road.
When emergency crews arrived on the scene at 3 a.m., they found Milburn’s white truck about 30 feet down an embankment.
“If someone hadn’t called it in, we might not have seen him,” said Miles.
