Man Airlifted To Hospital After Wreck

A man was airlifted to Vidant Medical Center Sunday afternoon after he wrecked his vehicle in Bertie County.

Highway Patrol says 66-year-old Lonnie Byrd, Jr. of Aulander was driving on Highway 305 near Burden Fire Rd. when he went around a curve too fast and ran off the road to the right. His vehicle then went into a ditch, hit a cement drainage pipe, went airborne, and then collided with a tree.

Troopers say Byrd will be charged with exceeding a safe limit at a curb and failing to wear a seat belt.
