Injured man who captured county's heart dies in sleep

-A A +A

The man who sparked an overwhelming show of generosity from Anderson County residents as he tried to recover from an accident that tore his jaw from his shattered face is dead.

Gregory Harp Jr., 28, died in his sleep Saturday while visiting his father's home in Lexington, according to family members.

Harp was injured seriously last June when the bicycle he was riding left the road, plummeting him head first into an 8-foot-deep culvert in Winchester.

Harp's face took the brunt of the impact, which shattered his facial bones into 100 pieces and ripped off his jaw.
