GREENVILLE, N.C. (WITN) - A member of the Greenville-Pitt County Chamber of Commerce’s leadership team remains in critical condition a day after a vehicle crash in Greenville.

Vidant Medical Center says Kimber Stone, who is the chamber’s director of member relations and programs, is in critical condition. The hospital says Trent McGee, president & CEO, is in good condition, while Aileen Peacock, the chamber’s director of talent and events, is in fair condition.

The hospital said it had no information about Lauren Phillips, director of marketing & communications for the organization.

Greenville police say the four were in Phillips’ SUV when it was hit head-on by a pickup truck on Memorial Drive, between O’Hagan Place and View Drive. The crash happened around 1:00 p.m. Wednesday.

Police have charged the pickup driver, Carlton Gaskins, with failure to maintain lane control and driving left of center. Officers say the 65-year-old man from Ahoskie was heading south when his truck crossed the center lane into oncoming traffic, side-swiped another pickup, and then hit the woman’s SUV.

The cause of the crash is under investigation and more charges are possible, police say.
