The Highway Patrol says an 18-year-old has been charged with DWI after a head-on crash New Years Eve that killed another 18-year-old old from Martin County.
State troopers say Dustin Snyder of Jamesville was killed when his car was hit on Prison Camp Road, near Bailey Road, around 10:40 p.m.
The Highway Patrol says a car driven by Adam Holliday of Williamston went left of center and hit Snyder's vehicle head on.
Troopers tell WITN News that additional charges are possible against Holliday. They say he suffered a broken leg in the accident and was transported to Pitt County Memorial Hospital. PCMH says Holliday has been released from the hospital.
Snyder worked at the Piggly Wiggly in Williamston, and had been let off work so he could go hunting. Donald Barber, store manager, talked to us about Snyder, "He talked about fishing and hunting all the time, everybody loved him, you just couldn't help but love him." Ironically, employees say Holliday had also worked at the same store in the past with Snyder.
Funeral arrangements have been set for Dustin Snyder. The wake will be held Sunday, January 3 at Williamston First Pentecostal Holiness Church between 7 p.m and 8:30 p.m. The funeral is set for Monday, January 4 at 11 a.m also held at Williamston First Pentecostal Holiness Church.
