A Whitley County man was killed Wednesday night when his boat crashed into a rock on Laurel Lake, according to county officials.
Lloyd A. Lawson, 60, of Corbin was fishing near Grove Marina on Wednesday night when his boat struck rock, Whitley County emergency management director Danny Moses said.
Lawson died at the scene, Coroner Andy Croley said.
A family from Barbourville found Lawson after the crash and brought him to the marina, Moses said. Before learning that Lawson was the only person in the boat, responders searched the area with sonar equipment.
Never miss a local story.
The crash appears to have been an accident, and alcohol or drugs are not suspected to have been a factor, Croley said.
