The North Carolina Highway Patrol said a man from Raeford suffered fatal personal injuries on the morning of April 10 in a single-vehicle crash on Wayside Road.
The accident took place about eight miles northeast of Raeford around 6:30 a.m., according to an accident report filed by Trooper D.R. Clark.
The report said that 29-year-old Hector Gibran Velazquez Lopez was driving southeast on Wayside Road in the direction of U.S. Highway 401 near Brock Road when his 2004 Jeep ran off the road to the right. He steered back to the road, but crossed the center line and ran off the road to the left, where the vehicle collided with a tree.
Lopez was pronounced dead at the scene.
Clark said that Lopez was traveling at an estimated rate of 70 mph in a 45 mph zone.
