Passenger Seriously Injured in Wreck in Pender County, North Carolina

Comments Off

A passenger was seriously hurt in an awful one-car wreck in Pender County, North Carolina (NC).

The accident occurred on Piney Woods Road near the intersection of Highway 421.


The passenger hurt in this incident was Jason Newkirk, according to wset.com. He was taken to New Hanover Regional Medical Center. He is listed in critical condition.

Reports indicate that the driver of the 2001 Chevrolet Camaro was traveling down Piney Woods Road when he crossed the center line, tried to overcorrect and lost control of the car. The vehicle flew off the road, hit a ditch, flipped and slammed into a pine tree resulting in the driver losing his life and Mr. Newkirk suffering serious injuries.

We send our sincere condolences to the family of the lost, and we also wish the passenger in this accident a quick recovery.
