Crash kills Clay County man

A Clay County man died Friday in a single-vehicle accident on U.S. 150 in the Crab Orchard community of Lincoln County, state police in Richmond said.

James Layton, 51, of Manchester, was pronounced dead at the scene.

A preliminary investigation indicates that Layton was westbound on U.S. 150 in a 2001 Ford F-150 pickup truck; the vehicle went onto the right shoulder of the road; and Layton overcorrected, causing the vehicle to cross both lanes of the highway and overturn, state police said.

The accident occurred just before 10 a.m.
