Driver Passes Out, Crashes & Dies

A Kinston man died Wednesday when he passed out behind the wheel and slammed into some pine trees.

Troopers say 55 year-old Eldridge Kornegay Junior was driving down Highway 11 South near Green Haynes Road in Lenoir County when he lost consciousness and crashed.

Highway patrol says it is waiting for word from the medical examiner since Kornegay didn't have any visible injuries from the crash.
