WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) – A 24-year-old Castle Hayne man died after he was ejected from his truck following a high-speed crash on Interstate 140 early Saturday morning.
According to the Highway Patrol, troopers were dispatched around 12:15 a.m. to a single-vehicle wreck near mile marker 19 on I-140, between the I-40 exit and the Castle Hayne exit on I-140.
Troopers say Trevin Tyrell Bagley was driving a Toyota pickup westbound on I-140 at a high rate of speed when he ran off the road to the left into a median, came back onto the roadway and lost control of the vehicle.
The truck overturned several times and came to rest on the right side of I-140.
Bagley, who wasn’t wearing a seat belt, was ejected from the truck and died at the scene. It’s not known if Bagley was impaired at the time of the crash, troopers say.
I-140 westbound was closed for a period of time due to the amount of debris in the roadway. Traffic was routed via I-40 around the collision scene.
