A Jonesville man died April 15 after an apparent cardiac-related episode is believed to have caused him to wreck the vehicle he was driving.
Kentucky State Police Post Five Public Affairs Officer Michael B. Webb said despite running off the road, over an embankment and into a wooded area, the cause of death came from the cardiac condition.
Webb said Charlie Webster, 70, of Jonesville was wearing a seat belt at the time of the accident, which happened at the 2000 block of Ky. 36/Jonesville Road.
State police received the call at 10:12 p.m.
The Owen County Sheriff’s Office responded, as well as the Jonesville Fire Department, Owen County Search and Rescue and the Owen County Coroner.
The sheriff’s office requested the help of state police.
 Webb said Webster’s vehicle was damaged, but that Webster had no trauma on his exterior.
“Witnesses said he was all over the road immediately prior to the wreck and that there was no braking involved,” Webb said.
