— The highway patrol was investigating a wreck Monday night near Fuquay-Varina involving a golf cart. Troopers say the golf cart didn't have any lights on.

The wreck happened on 42 East near Fleming Road.

Mikkel McKinnie, 20, told authorities he didn't see the golf cart and ran into the back of it with his Buick.

The golf cart went down a ditch and overturned. Both the golf cart’s driver, Vann Goodwin, and the 10-year-old passenger, Joshua Mannard, were ejected.

Goodwin was transported to WakeMed where he later died. Mannard was expected to be OK.

McKinnie was charged with provisional DWI since he is under 21 and had alcohol in his system. He is not expected to face any charges in relation to the wreck.
