— A 22-year-old Cary man was killed Monday morning in a single-vehicle wreck on Lake Wheeler Road north of Penny Road in Raleigh, authorities said.

Jeffrey Tabor Post Jr., of 711 North Hampton Drive, ran his 1994 Chevrolet Blazer off the right side of the road twice before going down a small embankment, overturning and hitting a tree shortly before 8 a.m., according to the state Highway Patrol.

He died at the scene. There were no passengers in the SUV, and no other vehicles were involved.

Speed was a factor in the crash, troopers said. However, they did not release how fast he was going.
