Weather May Have Factored In Pitt County Man's Death

Heavy rain may have been a factor in the death of a 74 year-old man who's truck crossed the center line and struck another vehicle Friday.

It happened around 7p.m. on NC-33 about 3.7 miles east of Chocowinity according to Highway Patrol.

Sgt. Tim Crumpler says Cecil Brinson of Grimesland was driving a 1971 Toyota pick-up when he veered across the center line and struck 43 year-old Shauna Moody head on.

Crumpler says it was raining at the time and weather may have played a factor in the crash.

Moody and another passenger were taken to Beaufort County Medical Center and their condition is not known at this time.

Crumpler says no charges will be filed against Moody.
