  • Man crashes truck after fatal heart attack

    An all-around good man who loved the Lord as much as he loved UK basketball. That's how friends are remembering Wayne Cox, who died Thursday morning after suffering a heart attack that led to a head-on collision. He was 60 years old.

    Jesse Mings has known Cox since childhood.

    Cox and Mings both grew up in Mannsville, though they didn't become close friends until later. The two men went to numerous UK basketball games together.

    "He also loved the Taylor County Cardinals and Campbellsville College. He hated Louisville," Mings said with a laugh.

    On the way home from church last week I heard a radio spot.

    Then the guy says, "Get this - on Sunday mornings the whole family gets in the car and goes to church."

    His friend asks, "How do you know they're going to church?"
