An investigation into a fatal Laurel County crash on US Highway 25 originally had officials looking for an unidentified woman, but they now report that the person they were searching for was not only a man, but was already in jail.

Deputies said they were able to tie 51-year-old Anthony Raymond to the May 7 accident in which he reportedly pulled his car out of Hazel Patch Road and into the path of 71-year-old Randolph Scott, who was riding a motorcycle.

Officials said Raymond ran into a wooded area following the crash.

He was arrested on May 9 on an unrelated charge of trafficking methamphetamine.

Raymond will now be facing additional charges of second-degree manslaughter, leaving the scene of an accident -- failure to stop and render aid and driving on a DUI-suspended license.

He is lodged in the Laurel County Detention Facility.
