A London man has died following a serious crash on Wyan Road Tuesday.

Cameron Harville, 23, died at the University of Kentucky Medical Center in Lexington from multiple blunt force trauma due to injuries sustained in a motor vehicle crash, according to the Fayette County Coroner’s Office. Harville’s death was ruled an accident.

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

Laurel County Sheriff John Root reported that Harville was driving a Nissan 350Z south on Wyan Road when he apparently lost control of the car, which ran off the road and traveled 114 feet before it struck a tree head-on. After the impact with the tree, the Nissan travelled an additional 44 feet before it finally stopped.

Harville was ejected from the car and was taken by ambulance to St. Joseph London, and then was airlifted to the UK Medical Center 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. A representative at UK Medical Center reported Monday Cornett was discharged from the hospital.

A cause has not yet been determined for the crash.

Deputy Robbie Grimes continues 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.
