Pinehurst, N.C. — A single-vehicle accident Wednesday killed a West End man just outside of Pinehurst.
The accident happened on N.C. Highway 211, near the intersection with Westgate Drive, around 2 p.m.
The driver, who was identified by officials as 65-year-old Gary Web of West End, was declared dead at the scene.
Web was reportedly driving west on N.C. 211 when his vehicle crossed the median and both eastbound lanes of 211 before going down a hill and striking a tree. He was pinned in his pickup, requiring firefighters to use hydraulic powered rescue tools to free him from the wreckage.
The Pinehurst Fire Department, West End Fire & Rescue, Moore County EMS, Moore County Sheriff’s Department and the North Carolina State Highway Patrol responded.
Web is the 28th person to die on Moore County roads in 2014.
