— A local man was killed Tuesday night in a single-car crash in Cumberland County, authorities said.

Avery Leroy Horne Jr., 45, of 2028 Seabrook School Road, lost control of his Ford Mustang on Turnbull Road near Gip Fisher Road at about 9 p.m. Tuesday, the state  Highway Patrol said.

Troopers said Horne was speeding and tried to overcorrect after initially leaving the roadway. The car then ran off the road and struck a telephone pole and a tree, authorities said.

Horne, who was the only occupant of the car, was pronounced dead at the scene.
