A Boyd County man is dead after crashing his car just miles from his home. 

Deputies with the Boyd County Sheriff's Department say John D. Jacobs, 33, of Catlettsburg, was driving north on Big Run Trace when he lost control of his van just after 9:30 p.m. Tuesday. 

The news release states Jacobs van went over an embankment, rolled and then landed on its side. Jacobs was ejected from the van and was dead when officers arrived. 

A 10-year-old girl was also in the van. She was taken to King's Daughters' Medical Center and later released. Deputies say she was wearing her seat belt.
