Crash leaves one man dead

A man is dead after a late night car crash in Laurel County.

The crash happened around 10 Thursday night on U.S. 25 near Fairston Road, three miles south of London.

The county sheriff says a car driven by 33-year old Douglas Peek went off the right shoulder of the road and slid about 300 feet through a yard and hit a tree.

Peek was pronounced dead at the scene. Officials say he was not wearing a seatbelt.

No one else was hurt.
