Man Injured After SUV Flips

A man is injured after his SUV flips on Highway 70 in Craven County according to Highway Patrol.

Troopers say Keith Morris of Havelock was driving east on Highway 70, when his SUV drifted from the left lane into the right lane and hit the rear of another car.

Morris lost control of the SUV, which then flipped.

He is facing charges of driving while impaired, wreckless driving, and driving with a revoked license.

Troopers believe he has non-life threatening injuries. He was trasnported to Carolina East Medical Center and then airlifted to Pitt County Memorial Hospital.

    I know the woman that he rear-ended. He was going nearly 100 mph when he hit her. 100 mph! While texting and driving drunk! This guy should be on his way to jail, but he'll get a measly DWI for this. He could have killed someone!

    Amen! That's why they run it so much, to send someone a bill so they can pay for it, and justify having it.

    How can they claim its not about the cost of the flight, when they were dispatched to pick someone up from beaufort to fly them to pitt and they died before the helicopter got there and they sent the widow a bill for almost $5000. I know that the helicopter can get people medical attention quicker but they run it more often than needed to collect lots of money to justify having it.

    No sympathy! While impaired. SUV mentality of "urban tank" oh it won't roll", can't happen to me. Tough.

    Driving while impaired, huh? The world would be better off with out stupid people like that. It's not enough that they endanger their own lives, but they are risking the lives of innocent people. I have no sympathy.

    As a general rule helicopters are WAY over used, especially in ENC. Proactive decision making and flexible SOG's on the part of the EMS crew can reduce incident to trauma/pci center considerably WITHOUT the use of aero-medical transport. But Eastcare won't tell you that, they won't even release their flight data for comparisons.

    With Obama's healthcare reform the cost of healthcare will soon matter to all. Right now some hospitals will treat patients without medical insurance and do whatever and the rest of America and the ones that do have medical insurance have to endure the cost. Once healthcare changes we may not have that option.

    Jerry- EMS request East Care, sometimes, depending of mechanism of injury. We go on what we hear first and then depending on what the scene looks like when we get there we keep them flying. Doesnt matter how much the flight cost, we are more worried about the patient and getting them to a Trauma Center the fastest way possible!

    possible head injury..automatic flight. Other conditions equal and automatic flight. its all in the protocol and procedures. They are spelled out ahead of time. Certain conditions mean East Care.
