North Carolina state troopers said that a man from Roanoke Rapids suffered fatal personal injuries in a crash two miles west of the city on the night of May 5.
According to troopers, 18-year-old Cody M. Gainey was eastbound on Thelma Road at about 9:30 p.m. when he crossed the center line, ran off the road to the left, and hit a ditch. The vehicle then overturned.
Gainey received transport to Pitt Memorial Hospital in Greenville, but was later pronounced dead, troopers said.
Alcohol is not believed to have been a factor in the crash.
