WINCHESTER, Ky. (AP) -- A central Kentucky man has died after a tree fell on him after he tried to clear a limb downed by heavy winds.

Clark County Sheriff Berl Perdue Jr. told The Winchester Sun that 30-year-old Michael Martin died at about 7 p.m. EDT Friday while in the act of being a good Samaritan.

Clark County Coroner Robert Gayheart said Martin of Montgomery County died from trauma at the scene.

Perdue said several roads in the county were partially or fully blocked Friday night after high winds came through the area and blew trees and other debris into the roadways.
