Wilson Man Killed After Pickup Overturns On Hwy 264A

A Wilson man was killed after troopers say his pickup truck ran off the highway and struck a culvert.

Michael Smith died in the accident. Troopers say the crash happened Wednesday around 4:00 a.m. on U.S. 264 alternate near the Highway 58 intersection.

They say the 52-year-old Smith's pickup was traveling west on the highway at a high rate of speed. The crash caused the truck to overturn, throwing the driver out. A passenger, Timothy Speight, was injured and taken to Wilson Memorial Hospital.

The Highway Patrol says speed was a factor and alcohol impairment is suspected in the accident.
