The North Carolina Highway Patrol reported that a man from Lillington suffered fatal personal injuries on the morning of November 18 when the vehicle he was traveling in collided with another vehicle south of Angier.
According to Trooper B.J. Barbour of the NCHP, 19-year-old Raleigh resident Nicholas Lamar Grady lost control of the 2000 Acura he was driving while rounding a curve on Old Buies Creek Road shortly after 10:30 a.m. The vehicle crossed the center line and struck a 2007 Dodge Charger driven by Fuquay-Varina resident Brian Joseph White at the intersection of Ennis Road.
Barbour said 18-year-old Argenis Alfredo Marin Gimenez, a passenger in the Acura, died at the scene.
According to Barbour, the Acura was traveling at an approximate rate of 70 mph in a 55 mph zone at the time of the accident.
Charges are still pending against Grady.
Grady and White received transport to WakeMed in Raleigh to undergo treatment for minor injuries.
An 18-month-old girl that was a passenger in White’s vehicle also received hospital transport for minor injuries.
Barbour said the toddler was not in a car seat and White was charged with failure to properly restrain a child.
