Driver charged after weekend crash kills New Bern man

CRAVEN COUNTY, NC (WITN) - A Craven County man has been charged after a deadly accident this past weekend on a busy highway.

29-year-old Joshua "Aaron" Thomas, of New Bern, was killed in the accident.

Justin Williams, of Ernul, faces misdemeanor death by motor vehicle, driving left of center, and reckless driving after Sunday's three-vehicle crash on U.S. 17 north of Bridgeton.

The accident killed 29-year-old Joshua "Aaron" Thomas, of New Bern.

Troopers say the 35-year-old Williams was headed north when he crossed over the centerline, sideswiped a southbound car and then crashed into a second southbound vehicle. Two other people were injured in the accident.

Thomas' funeral will be 1:30 p.m. Thursday at Pollock-Best Funeral Home. The family will receive friends at the funeral home starting at 12:00 noon.
