— A Rougemont man was killed on Wednesday morning in a single-vehicle wreck in Durham County, the State Highway Patrol said.

Paul Mason Budd, 49, was southbound on Range Road at about 6:45 a.m. when his Chevrolet pickup ran off the right side of the road near Tom Jones Road and struck and embankment before hitting three trees, Trooper M.D. Holmes said.

Speed and weather are believed to be factors in the crash, and Budd wasn't wearing a seat belt, Holmes said.
