County’s fifth fatality of year

Man dies five days after car accident on Wyan Road

LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. —

Five days following a traffic accident on Wyan Road, the driver of a Nissan 350-Z has died.

Cameron Harville, 23, of London, died at the University of Kentucky Medical Center on Sunday night, from injuries received in a one-vehicle accident on April 15 on Wyan Road, five miles west of London.

Harville was headed southbound when his car went off the road, traveled 114 feet and hit a tree head-on. After hitting the tree, the car continued to travel for another 44 feet before coming to rest. Harville was ejected from the vehicle. He was taken to Saint Joseph London, then flown to the Lexington hospital where he remained in critical condition.

A passenger in the vehicle, 23-year-old Michael Cornett, was flown from the accident scene to the University of Kentucky Medical Center where he was listed in fair condition.

Harville was a graduate of South Laurel High School and was employed at Falls Auto Group.

This is the fifth fatal accident in the county this year, which is one more than those occurring during 2013 on this same date. However, a double fatality occurred on April 26, 2013 when two men were found deceased at Bee Rock Recreational campground.
