State troopers believe alcohol may have played a role in a deadly car crash this afternoon in Pitt County.

It happened outside of Grifton.

Troopers say the car being driven by 56-year-old Nathaniel Newborn was speeding down Brown Hodges Road and didn't stop where the road dead ends into Stokestown-Saint Johns Road.

The car went into a cotton field, overturned, and Newborn was thrown from the vehicle.

Troopers say Newborn had just moved to Jacksonville from Texas.
