— A 64-year-old man died Sunday in Pinehurst after his car crashed into a tree.

Officials said the crash occurred around 9 a.m. on Linden Road when a sedan ran off the road, striking a pine tree and pinning the driver, James. E. Clark, Jr., inside the car.

Emergency crews had to cut the driver's side door off the car in order to remove Clark.

Clark was transported to Moore Regional Hospital, where he was pronounced dead as a result of his injuries.

Officials say Clark had been involved in another crash on Linden Road in March that killed another man. According to officials, Clark's charges in relation to the accident were still pending.

The crash is under investigation.

    He shouldn't have been on the road. His license should have been suspended pending investigation.
