State troopers say they will not charge an Onslow County deputy sheriff who wrecked his cruiser Sunday night.
The Highway Patrol says Deputy Charles Crites was responding to a call at the Exxon station in Sneads Ferry when he came around a curve and ran off the road into a ditch.
Sheriff Ed Brown says it happened around 9:30 p.m. on Old Folkstone Road in Sneads Ferry. Brown says the patrol car received minor damage and the deputy was not injured.
Troopers tell WITN News that they estimate the 25-year-old deputy was going about 45 miles per hour in a 55 mph zone.
Brown says his department will conduct an internal investigation into the accident.
