Two injured in Wyan Road crash

Car hits tree before coming to a stop

LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. — A collision with a tree on Wyan Road on Tuesday night sent two Laurel men to a Lexington hospital with serious injuries.

The wreck occurred around 8 p.m., five miles west of London, after the Nissan 350-Z, driven by 23-year-old Cameron Harville of London, went out of control in the southbound lane and traveled 114 feet and hit a tree head-on. The vehicle then went another 44 feet before coming to a stop.

Harville was ejected from the vehicle and was transported to Saint Joseph London by Ambulance Inc. of Laurel County, then airlifted to the University of Kentucky Medical Center with critical injuries. He was still listed in critical condition on Wednesday afternoon, according to officials with the UK Medical Center.

A passenger in the vehicle, Michael Cornett, 23, also of London, was taken from the scene by helicopter to the UK Medical Center. On Wednesday afternoon, he was listed in fair condition by hospital officials.

Laurel County Sheriff’s Deputy Robbie Grimes investigated the accident. He was assisted by Senior Sgt. Greg Poynter and Deputy Daniel Grigsby. Other agencies assisting were members of the Laurel County Volunteer Fire Department and London-Laurel County Rescue Squad.
