A Laurel County man faces a manslaughter charge after a weekend four-wheeler accident in which a passenger died.
Stanley Hubbard, 47, is charged with driving under the influence and second-degree manslaughter, a Class C felony punishable by five to 10 years in prison. He is charged in the death of Mary Lou Allen, 47, of Laurel County.
Allen, a passenger on a Honda all-terrain vehicle, died Sunday in the accident in a wooded area off Dean Oakley Road about a half-mile west of London, said a news release from the Laurel County sheriff's office.
The ATV was traveling down an embankment when it turned over on top of Hubbard and Allen.
