Log Truck Driver Charged After Morning Crash

A log truck driver has been charged with careless and reckless driving after his big rig wrecked this morning in Craven County.

Trooper Steve Brown says around 11:10 a.m. the driver, Warren Sumrell, came around a curve on River Road too fast and caused the truck to turn over. Sumrell was pinned in the wreckage for nearly 90 minutes.

Sumrell was airlifted to Pitt County Memorial Hospital with what the trooper said were non-life threatening injuries.

No other vehicles were involved.
