An Onslow County man has been charged for causing a deadly crash Thursday afternoon.
The Highway Patrol says 25-year-old Spencer Sharpe of Richlands was heading down Highway 172 in Hubert when his vehicle struck another vehicle that was slowing down to turn into a driveway.
Troopers say the man's vehicle then crossed the center line, head-on into an oncoming vehicle that was pulling a boat. The driver of that vehicle, 61-year-old Jake Jones of Kinston, was killed.
Sharpe was charged with misdemeanor death by motor vehicle because of the crash.
