A 51-year-old Laurel County man has been charged with second-degree manslaughter in connection with a recent wreck that killed a Lexington motorcyclist.
Anthony Raymond also was charged with leaving the scene of an accident and driving on a suspended license from an earlier DUI charge, according to the Laurel County Sheriff's Department.
Raymond, who was in the Laurel County jail on an unrelated drug-trafficking charge, was arrested there Thursday, police said.
The crash occurred just before 6 p.m. May 7 on U.S. 25. According to deputies, a purple Dodge Neon pulled out from Hazel Patch Road into the path of a Harley-Davidson motorcycle that was traveling north on U.S. 25. The rider, Randolph Scott, 71, of Lexington, died.
