The Boone County Sheriff's Office on Tuesday identified the Hallsville man who died early Monday when he was electrocuted by a downed power line.

Andrew B. Moss, 22, was killed when he got out of his vehicle at about 1:30 a.m. along South River Road, the sheriff's office said in a social media post. Moss was dead when deputies arrived at the scene.

Investigators believe Moss died after coming in contact with a downed power line after his vehicle crashed into a utility pole, the sheriff's office said.
