Young father working overnights killed in Harrison County crash

A young father working overnights was killed in a car crash Tuesday morning. Cameron Price, 22, had just gotten off work and was heading home when he was involved in a crash on State Road 135, just outside Corydon.

Price had been working seven days a week, and on third shift, tough hours but better pay, in order to provide for his growing family. Most days he left for work around 10 p.m.


Girlfriend May Clark, the mother of his 2.5-month-old daughter, Kenzleigh, said Monday evening was no different.

“He was about to walk out the door and I was like, ‘Come back and give the baby a kiss too.’ He was like, ‘I love you, Kenz.’ He gave her a kiss and that was the last time we both seen him,” Clark remembered.

It was around 8 a.m. Tuesday when tragedy struck. According to eyewitnesses, it appears Price fell asleep behind the wheel, overcorrected, and ended up in the path of a semi.

Authorities in Harrison County are investigating the crash, but no charges are expected to be filed against the driver of the semi.

As Clark busies herself planning a funeral, she is finding comfort in their baby girl.

“I’m just glad I have a part of him to keep forever,” she said of their daughter, adding, “She’s my world now.”

Anyone wishing to help Price’s family can make donations at any location of the Meade County Bank or by calling the bank at 270-422-4141 and mentioning “In benefit of Kenzleigh.”
