Troopers: Single Vehicle Crash Kills Kinston Man

The Highway Patrol says a man is dead after a car crash in which alcohol may have played a role.

Troopers out of Lenoir County say that it happened Friday around 7:20 p.m. Officials say that 23-year-old David Greenup of Kinston was driving south on Wallace Family Road toward NC Highway 11, when he went off the road, hit a ditch and flipped.

Greenup, who troopers say they don’t believe was wearing a seatbelt, was thrown from the vehicle. We’re told he died at the scene.

Troopers say that alcohol use is suspected.
