The Highway Patrol says a local man was killed in an accident in Martin County.
Troopers tell WITN the wreck happened on US 64, about a mile and a half east of Jamesville.
Officials say 51-year-old Ibrahim Rizek of Greenville was driving west on the highway in a 2011 Toyota passenger car when he crashed into the back of a Waste Industry garbage truck around 2:30 Friday afternoon. The garbage truck was legally in the road, according to troopers.
We're told Rizek was not wearing a seatbelt when he hit the garbage truck while going about 55 miles per hour.
Troopers say Rizek was taken to Martin General Hospital where he died.
