Patrick A. Layman
A Corydon man was killed Friday when he lost control of his vehicle and hit a tree stump.
Patrick A. Layman, 24, was driving south on the New Middletown-Elizabeth Road when he came around a curve about two miles south of New Middletown and lost control of his Honda Prelude on the wet pavement just after 10 a.m., said Sgt. David Heilig of the Harrison County Sheriff’s Dept.
Layman’s car went off the road and struck a small tree stump on the driver’s side, which caused the vehicle to overturn, police said.
Harrison County Deputy Coroner Chad Cesar said Layman died of massive head and neck injuries. Police said Layman was not wearing a seat belt.
A native of Arkansas, born Aug. 19, 1977, Layman was the son of Rick and Ruth Layman of Louisville.
He was a bartender at Caesars Indiana at Bridgeport and served in the U.S. Army. He was a member of the Elizabeth United Methodist Church.
Survivors besides his parents include his wife, the former Amanda Brown, and a daughter, Olivia Layman.
The funeral was Wednesday, Oct. 17, at W.G. Hardy-Valley Chapel in Louisville with burial in Bethany Memorial Cemetery. The Rev. Steve Spencer officiated.
