One Killed In Weekend Crash

One man is dead two others were sent to the hospital after a weekend car crash.

23-year-old Ryan Brown of Ayden died when his car hit a ditch and overturned. The Highway Patrol says Brown was traveling south on Highway 903 near Winterville, crossed the center line and over-corrected. It happened early Sunday morning.

Two passengers in the vehicle, 24-year old Ashley Gower and Courtney Nelson were flown to Pitt County Memorial Hospital. Troopers say Brown and Gower were wearing seatbelts, while Nelson was not. She was thrown from the vehicle. The two women were listed in fair condition.

The Highway Patrol says speed is most likely a factor in this accident, but it is still under investigation.

    I went to school with Ryan and Bobby and was in Ryans class for about 5 years. Kind of bad to hear something like this happens to your everyday people. May the good Lord be with their family as well as another family in Ayden, this just resurfaces a painful memory....

    The one word that keeps popping up in descriptions about Ryan Brown is "kind". It was a true gift of his. Beyond his bright smile he had a deep kindness and respect toward others. For a man that young to have the ability to love others unconditionally is a rare trait indeed. You will be missed but your spirit of lovingkindness lives on, Ryan.

      Thank you so much for standing up for Bobby..... I was very disappointed to read comments that singled him out at such a time as this. He has enough on his plate, he doesn't need anyone adding to it...... you, indeed, are a good friend :)
