(LONDON, KY.) On Friday, October 19, 2012 at approximately 9:22 AM, the Kentucky State Police, Post 11 London, received a report of a single vehicle traffic crash on KY 490 in Laurel County.

Upon arrival Trooper John Barnett determined that a 1999, black, Ford, F-150, pickup, operated by Lloyd J. Smith, 27, of East Bernstadt, was eastbound on KY 490 when it failed to negotiate a curve, struck several trees and came to rest in a vacant field.
