-A A +A
By Nathan L. McBroom

A 10-year-old boy was killed Sunday afternoon when high winds broke off a large tree limb that fell and crushed him at his family's home near Simpsonville.

Frederick Wilson, 10, is the only known fatality from Sunday's massive windstorm, which caused fires, knocked out power, interrupted cable service and knocked broadcast channels off the air.

The storm, which was created by the breakup of Hurricane Ike, pummeled Western Kentucky and the Louisville Metro area with winds in excess of 70 mph.
