Staff Report

A London man died late Friday from injuries he suffered in a one-car crash Thursday, according to Laurel County Sheriff John Root.

Eddie Nolan, 53, was critically injured in the crash, which happened as he drove along Tom Cat Trail, or Hwy. 1305, five miles east of London Thursday afternoon.

Witnesses said Nolan was driving east at a high rate of speed when he crossed into the oncoming lane of traffic in a curve, lost control, ran off the left shoulder of the road, overturned and toppled into a tree before coming to rest in a ditch.

Nolan was airlifted to the University of Kentucky Medical Center in Lexington.

Root said the Fayette County Coroner’s Office advised him of Nolan’s death.

The crash remains under investigation by Sgt. E.R. Rudder.
