POWELL COUNTY, Ky. (WSET) - A photo taken at the scene of a fatal crash in Kentucky is going viral on Facebook. Some say it shows a man's spirit leaving his body.

The photo was taken by Saul Vazquez who says he took the picture from the cab of his truck as he was driving by. He says, "it was an accident between (C)ampton and Stanton on the service road just off of the mountain parkway, zoom in and pay attention to the shadow just off the top of the state trooper hat."

Many think that grey above the trooper's head is shaped like the figure of a man. Local media outlets report that a motorcyclist involved in the crash died at the hospital later that day.

Vazquez says the image has not been altered in any way.
