— A Lillington man was killed Thursday morning when the car he was riding in slammed into another car south of Angier, the Highway Patrol said.

Nicholas Lamar Grady, 19, of 502 S. Wilmington St. in Raleigh, lost control of his 2000 Acura as he rounded a curve on Old Buies Creek Road shortly after 10:30 a.m., said Trooper B.J. Barbour of the Highway Patrol. The Acura crossed the center line and collided with a 2007 Dodge Charger driven by Brian Joseph White, of Fuquay-Varina, at the intersection of Ennis Road, Barbour said.

Argenis Alfredo Marin Gimenez, 18, a passenger in the Acura, was pronounced dead at the scene.

The Acura was traveling at about 70 mph when the wreck happened, Barbour said. The posted speed limit on Old Buies Creek Road is 55 mph.

Charges are pending against Grady in the wreck.

Grady and White were taken to WakeMed in Raleigh for treatment of minor injuries.

An 18-month-old girl in White's car also was taken to the hospital for treatment of minor injuries. Barbour said the toddler wasn't in a car seat, and White was charged with failure to restrain a child properly.

    Pay attention to the article people-the Acura, not the Dodge Charger was going 70. Doesn't say how fast White's car was going. Freddy's family is having such a hard time dealing with the loss and have not accepted yet that he is dead. Pray for them and for the other driver that he makes better decisions to use carseats. Not everyone is perfect, including all the overly-judgemental people on here that attack stories and the people in them!!!

    At least the child was in a seatbelt and not just going about freely. Accidents happen and people are not perfect. "Ye without sin, cast the first stone". My prayers go out to EVERYONE involved in this accident and their families!

    It is hard to imagine anyone not putting their child in a child restrain system/seat/carrier or whatever. Children become flying projectiles in any wreck and it is so easy for them to be killed or badly injured. You may be a safe driver, but this shows that you can still get into an accident.

    What a tragic loss for such a nice family. Very, very sad day for them.

    I live not too far from that intersection and that's not the first time someone has lost control on that curve. My cousin was almost hit because of some fool flying around there. These people need to start thinking about what they are doing!!

    Holy cow. Even if you think you are the best driver in the world, what happens the day someone drives into you going 70? He's really lucky that child wasn't killed. Why on earth wouldn't you have an 18 month old in a car seat???
