A University of Kentucky professor has died after his vehicle became submerged in water in central Kentucky.

Police told WKYT-TV that 71-year-old Stanley Rosenbaum’s truck became submerged when it traveled down an embankment after he crashed into another vehicle that had stalled in high water (http://bit.ly/uhO5GE). Police said the accident happened Tuesday night in Nelson County.

Jeremy Popkin, who is director of UK’s Jewish Studies program, said Rosenbaum worked in the program as a part-time professor.

Nelson County Sheriff Steven Campbell called it a “sad situation” and said no one saw the accident happen.
