Greenville Man Dies In Motorcycle Crash In Greene County

A Greenville man died after a motorcycle crash in Greene County this weekend.

The Highway Patrol says 40-year-old Dontino Lamont Forbes was traveling down Glenfield Road south of Snow Hill Saturday about 10:15 p.m. when his motorcycle ran off the right side of the road, hit a driveway culvert and then flipped, landing in another driveway culvert.

Forbes was pronounced dead on the scene.

Troopers say it is unknown what caused the motorcyle to go off the road. Troopers say the bike's estimated speed was at 70 miles per hour, while the speed limit on that road is 45 miles per hour.

    RIP Lamont! You were a great friend and mechanic. I dont know who I am going to call now when I need something fixed on my car. I am going to miss you! We talked Monday about fixing my cousin's car and I never though in a million years that would've been our last conversation. My heart goes out to your family. I know how much you loved and cared about them!

    Glenfield Rd is a pretty curvy road and is very narrow. To be going down that road at 10pm at night at 70mph is very dangerous. I've been through there during the day and if your not familiar with that road you can get in trouble very easy. RIP BRO!
