Fatal wreck occurs on N.C. 194

by Staff Reports

A 25-year-old man died Wednesday morning after his pickup truck ran off the road on N.C. 194 in Valle Crucis and overturned several times.

William Francey of Banner Elk died at the scene, according to Trooper Tim Hendrix of the N.C. Highway Patrol.

The accident occurred around 3:30 a.m. in a slight left curve near Clarks Creek Road, Hendrix said.

Hendrix said it appeared the 2008 Ford pickup was traveling too fast, ran off the road to the right, hit an embankment and overturned several times. The truck came to rest upside down in the road.

The road was closed to traffic for most of the morning hours.
