Jamaican police say 57-year-old Roy Anthony Stout was pronounced dead at a hospital Friday night. The woman, who hasn't been identified, was reported in critical condition Saturday.

Police on the Caribbean island say the driver has been detained and is being interviewed.

Family members told the Lexington Herald Leader that the dead man was co-owner and designer for a well-known Lexington business, Stout Printing.

His brother, Jerry Stout, said Stout and his girlfriend had arrived in Jamaica on Wednesday.
