Pinebluff, N.C. — Investigators believe a man killed in a single vehicle wreck Sunday afternoon was driving in excess of 75 mph when he crashed on U.S. Highway 1 outside Pinebluff.
Garry Hart Hailey, 53, of Woodland Way in Pinebluff, died at the scene. He was not wearing a seatbelt and was driving with a revoked license, the state Highway Patrol said.
Hailey's sister, Jennifer Hailey, 52, was flown by helicopter to a hospital. A third person in the vehicle was not hurt.
The wreck happened when the vehicle over-corrected and struck trees on the opposite side of the road, investigators said.
Authorities have not said what caused Garry Hailey to lose control of his vehicle.
