Speed is to blame for the death of a 22 year old.

Highway Patrol says Roy Clayton Junior was driving on a dirt road too fast Friday afternoon when his vehicle overturned and struck several trees.

He died at Pitt County Memorial Hospital. A woman was in the car with him at the time.

She was sent to Craven County, no word yet on her condition

    My son was a marine stationed at MCAS Cherry Point. He served two tours in Iraq. He was a great man. He was a member of Faith Church of the Nazarene in Jacksonville. He played base guitar in our praise team. He loved people and serving others. I think he deserves honor, respect, and truth in this article. Thank you

    Hello I was very hurt by this news article. There was alot of things put in this article that were in correct. The first thing was Roy is my husband and it was I his wife that was in the vehicle with him not just any woman. The second thing is he was not speeding he was going 45 mph only and there was NO speed limit posted it was a graveled highway and if you look it up you will see Jeeps roll easy. It was just a normal day we were on our way to his Grandmothers wedding rehearsal dinner. If we would have known that that Road was that dangerous we wouldn't have went down that road. Also he was a Cpl in the military and he was a wonderful man. He never drove reckless especially with me in the car with him. He also was a doner he saved four lives and made a way for two people to see. Please make sure you get the real facts before you put articles out. This hurt alot of people who not only knew the true facts but knew who he was. I am not trying to be rude this just hurt deeply.

    The accident was not caused by speed, I would appreciate an appology and a correction. This is the first I have seen of this article. It makes me wonder how accurate our news reports are.
