Crash on Wyan Road seriously injures two

CORBIN — Times-Tribune  Staff Report

Two men remain in a Lexington hospital with serious injuries Wednesday, after they were involved in a one-car crash west of London Tuesday evening.

The wreck happened around 8 p. m. on Wyan Road, five miles west of London.

Laurel County Sheriff John Root reported that a Nissan 350Z, driven by Cameron Harville, 23, of London, was southbound on Wyan Road, when apparently the car went out of control, ran off the road traveling 114 feet before striking a tree head-on.

After the impact with the tree, the Nissan travelled an additional 44 feet before it finally rested.

Harville was ejected from the car and was taken by ambulance to Saint Joseph London, and then airlifted to the University of Kentucky Medical Center in Lexington with critical injuries.

A passenger in Harville’s car, Michael Cornett, 23, also of London, was flown from the scene by medical helicopter to the UK Medical Center with serious injuries.

Sheriff’s Deputy Robbie Grimes is continuing his investigation into the cause of the crash. He was assisted at the scene by Senior Sgt. Greg Poynter and Deputy Daniel Grigsby. Other agencies assisting included the Laurel County Fire Department, the London-Laurel Rescue Squad, and Ambulance, Inc. of Laurel County.

Three arrested for possessing drug paraphernalia

Reports of drug activity at a London motel led to the arrest of three people early Wednesday morning, not just for possession of drug paraphernalia, but other charges as well.

Raymond Eggers, 29, of New Salem Road, London, was charged with possession of drug paraphernalia and endangering the welfare of a minor.

Savannah Hill, 28, of East Pittsburg Church Road, London, was also charged with possession of drug paraphernalia and endangering the welfare of a minor. In addition, she was charged on a Pulaski County bench warrant of arrest for failure to appear in court on numerous traffic violations.

A third person, Sally Hill, 51, also of East Pittsburg Church Road, London, was charged with both possession of drug paraphernalia and endangering the welfare of a minor.

All three were jailed in the Laurel County Detention Facility in London.

The arrests happened Monday at around 4:45 a.m., and were made by Laurel County Sheriff’s Deputy Shawn Boroviak, along with Sgt. Brett Reeves and Deupty Mikey Ashurst.

The arrests were the result of a drug activity complaint at a motel in London.

When deputies arrived at the motel room, they discovered drug paraphernalia in the room, along with used syringes that were uncapped and laying within arms’ reach of a 7-year-old child who was sleeping in the floor in a small play tent.

Social Services was called to the scene and the child was released to his father.
