LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- More snow was in Kentucky's forecast for Friday, this time in central Kentucky, as winter storm warnings ended in southeastern Kentucky, where one man died.

A 73-year-old eastern Kentucky pastor was killed Thursday when a four-wheeler he was using to clear snow slid off an icy, steep driveway into a creek. Knott County Coroner Jeff Blair said the Rev. Carlos Craft died at his home in the Emmalena community, where he was cleaning the driveway with a snow blade attached to the vehicle. Blair said about 7 to 8 inches of snow had fallen there overnight.

Craft was pronounced dead at the scene of head trauma. Blair said Craft was pastor of Calvary Baptist Church at Pinetop.

The weather service issued winter weather advisories for central Kentucky on Friday and forecast 2 to 4 inches of snow by evening.
