Campbell County Farmer Killed in Crash

Campbell County (WVLT) -- A man friends describe as well known and well liked has died in a car crash in Campbell County.

Friends say that around 8:00 a.m. Saturday morning, 79 year-old Jesse Henson was driving his Ford Ranger pickup truck on Flat Hollow Road.

They say Henson, a farmer, appears he was rounding a curve when he hit an embankment and the truck turned on its side.

An autopsy will be done on Monday to determine if Henson died because of the crash or from some sort of medical condition.
