An elderly man who was injured two weeks ago in an accident has died.
State troopers say Chester Heath of Kinston passed away on Christmas from injuries in the December 18th crash.
The accident happened around 4:45 p.m. on Highway 11 and 903, just north of Kenansville. Heath's 81 year old wife, Mary, was also injured and was released from the hospital on Monday.
The Highway Patrol says the 83 year old man was heading north, and was making a left turn onto Highway 903 when he pulled into the path of an oncoming pickup truck.
