CYNTHIANA, Ky. (AP) — Police say a 77-year-old Kentucky man survived in his wrecked car for several days after it went over an embankment.
WKYT (http://bit.ly/1GxuDFO ) reports that a passerby spotted Wilbur Eugene Harrod's red car on Wednesday in Harrison County.
Scott County Sheriff Tony Hampton said Harrod was last seen Friday afternoon leaving a friend's home in neighboring Scott County. Family and friends had driven along the same the road on Sunday searching for Harrod but did not find him.
Hampton said Harrod told rescuers he had been in the car for several days.
Harrod was conscious but dehydrated when rescue crews got to him. He was listed in serious condition Thursday at the University of Kentucky Medical Center.
This story has been corrected to reflect that Tony Hampton is Scott County sheriff, not Harrison County sheriff.
