A 78-year-old man, involved in a December 27th accident in Newark, has died.
A Grant Medical Center spokesman confirmed that Royle Campbell died yesterday.
Campbell and his wife, 75-year-old Barbara, were driving on Thornwood Road when their SUV went off the side of the road and hit a tree.
Rescue crews used the "jaws of life" at the scene before initially taking both Royle and Barbara to Licking Memorial Hospital.
Authorities say weather may have played a role in the incident.
