NEW INFO: Funeral Arrangements Set For New Years Eve Crash Victim

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.

    Let me explain to you that I only said to e that it is an act of GOD when you leave this world and he or she became angry at me. I never said that it was just an accident or that Blake did not make a bad decision and to me it is just like putting a gun to someone's head and pulling the trigger. And also said that my child and me was riding the road that night and it could of been us and yes if it was my child I would be very angry, but anger would not bring my son back or me back if my mom was angry. She or he had no right to talk bad to me. I never said anything bad about Dustin. I said he is a very handsome young man and it is a very sad tragedy. And I feel very sorry for his family. And I will keep praying that his family find peace. To e and plus e my handle.

    first of all, it is mighty childish for the grown people to be up here arguing like they are. it is ridiculous. and 4 those of u tryin to make blake seem so innocent, u need a reality check! God forbid it was a family member or friend of yours that was killed by the ignorance of the drunk driver that wasnt even old enough to have the alcohl in the first place. personally i feel no sorrow for blake other than him havin to live the rest of his life with the memory of the stupid decision he made in the back of his mind. I think that him and who ever the ignorant person is that brought the alcohol for him should go down with the best punishment they can get. and for the people sayin that it was a "ACCIDENT", but gettin behind the wheel of a car when you know your not sober is NOT a accident. but anyway my thoughts and prayers are with dustins family.....sorry for your loss...

    Dustin's Rally Jamesville High School Auditorium January 30,2010 @ 5:00 p.m. Dustin would want us to remember what he stood for and some of the stuff written would not please him! Please respect him and the memory we have of him and pray for Blake because that is what Dustin would have done.

    I won't comment to you because you are just angry over this tragic lost. I hope God see you and this family through this hard times. To just asking I agree but at this time the family and friends of Dustin are very sad and need our blessings to make it through.

    "to e", "plus e", whatever your handle is. It doesn't matter how many times you sling your calvinist nonsense, it is still a falsehood created to confuse. The Bible is clear, God gave man free will. The weather is God's will, not ours. But when a moron gets behind the wheel of a car after having consumed alcohol and kills someone, it is that drunk driver exercising his free will. It is not the will of God. Life is NOT preordained. You are just incapable of understanding the relationship between God's omniscience, His will and the free will he gave to man. Since you are obviously incapable of the required level of cognitive processes necessary to understand these relationships, it is pointless to try to explain it further for you. God will look over you since you can't grasp such a complicated concept. For the simple minded, everything has to be a straight black or white arrangement for you to understand. It is you who thinks he knows God and doesn't. This was not an act of God.

    Yes this was a terrible accident in which a young man made a bad decision to drive. Please people, both families are suffering and until the FACTS come out about whose at fault, have repsect for both young men. You may be surprised. Both of these young men were friends to many people..even between themselves. Support should be there for both. The man upstairs knows what happened and he's the only one whom may ever know the truth.

    It could have been anyone that Blake could have hit. Me and my son. We were in Greenville, but at some point and time we would have came home on that road. Sadly it was Dustin and feel really bad for his family, but when it is your time to leave this world you will leave it. It is an act of GOD.

    You think you know GOD, but you don't. The earthquake that killed several people in Haiti. Who was that an act of? Are you saying a human being made that earthquake happen? How about when someone dies of a dreadful disease. I guess you are going to say the devil. Are you going to say that person was bad and that is why he or she died of cancer. When some people don't even smoke or drink, but they have cancer. Do you believe in GOD? I think not.

    "d", unless you are him, you do not know how he feels. Even if you got drunk and caused a fatality earlier in your life, you still don't know how he feels. You could feel one way and he could feel another way because you are too different people with different personal values. You DO NOT know how he feels. You are presuming that you do. What he tells you, means nothing. He can tell you anything to gain your sympathy. Apparently it was fairly easy for him. Regardless of who's family member it is, yours, mine or someone else's, the punishment aspect must come with situations like these. "Feeling bad" is not a punishment. It is an emotion that can be or not be, but can always be claimed to try to gain sympathy and remove the possibility of real punishment. Fellow drunks and lushes making excuses for drunk driving is without value to me so there is no need to continue that nonsense.

    "e" I dare not "PRESUME" how Blake feels. I KNOW how he feels and what he is going through. I also KNOW that drinking and driving is not a joke and dare not "snicker" at it and nothing in my statemnet should give you the assumption that I do. I also was NOT making a LAME excuse for ppl who get behind the wheel drinking. Just simply pointing out the TRUTH of how often it does happen, even when someone has had one drink and think everything is alright. "Sponger" Not everyone who gets behing the wheel drinking is a "SLIMEBALL" GOD forbid any friend or family member of yours ever make a horindous mistake like this!
