Lenoir Accident Claims a Life

It's unclear if the winter weather caused a fatal wreck in Lenoir County Saturday evening.

Highway Patrol Troopers say 69 year old Seth Hughes died when his car crossed the center line collided with another car on Highway 55 around 5:20 Saturday evening. Troopers say it looks like Hughes wasn't wearing his seatbelt, and was partially ejected from his vehicle when it overturned. The car he hit had a mom and two kids inside, but they are ok. Troopers are not sure why Hughes vehicle crossed the center line.
