Man Found Dead In Tyson's Creek

North Carolina Highway Patrol reports a man was found in his vehicle submerged in the water around 11:30 Saturday morning.

The 2002 Kia Sedona was found in Tyson's Creek by a Falkland Firefighter with only a tire showing out of the water.

Trooper A.B. Smith tells WITN 37 year-old Marion Lamont McMillian is the person who was unable to make it out of the vehicle.

The Trooper says they will not call it a drowning because their investigation is not complete.

It is not clear what time the accident happened.

According to Smith the Sedona was traveling east on Short Bridge Road about a mile outside of South Falkland in Pitt County.

Smith says the Sedona may have been traveling too fast near a curve when it went off the road into an embankment.

Smith says the vehicle hit a fence then flipped twice and landed upside down. Smith says the creek is about seven feet deep.

    I know him & it is a real tragedy. We are still dealing with it & trying to cope with it. He is well known & will really be missed. It was an accident one we hope to get pass & move on. Thnx for the prayers because his family & friends will defintely need it. He was loving, a good father,a good friend to alot, & just himself. He never tried to be nothing but hisself. His smile & ability to make people laugh even when you were mad at him was just something. Thnx for the love & may god bless all of yall.

    Al, it's an aspect of their job and impacts the public's opinion of their competency. Would you trust an accountant that makes math errors.

    I am so tired of all the so called GRAMMER Checkers. Heck they cannot even spell GRAMMAR!If you want to make an A@$ out of your self do it some other way and some other place . Get a job and do not be so critical of others! WITN does a decent job of grammar and stories. After all they are only human too!
