HAZARD, Ky. (LEX 18) -  A Perry County man was killed following a two-vehicle crash late Tuesday afternoon. 

Police say that Roger Clark, age 46 of Viper, was operating a 2005 Chevrolet Monte Carlo on Highway 7 South. Clark's car crossed the centerline and entered the northbound lane, where it collided with a 2012 Dodge Ram which was driven by 29-year-old Matthew Sturgill of Cumberland, KY. 

Clark was pronounced deceased at the scene by Perry County Deputy Coroner Jeff Combs. Sturgill was transported to the Hazard Appalachian Regional Hospital, where he was treated for minor injuries.
