— A man's plan to sell his high-performance sports car was upended when he flipped that car on a Pitt County highway.

WITN reports that the single-car crash happened around 2 p.m. on Monday near N.C. Highway 11 and Staton Mill Road.

Spencer Everette, of Greenville, told WITN that he pulled onto N.C. Highway 11 and "gunned it."

Everette then lost control of the 2020 Stingray corvette, ran off the road and into a ditch.

Everette said he was selling the car Tuesday and the ride was his "last hurrah."

WITN said that Everette wasn't injured in the crash. He was charged with reckless driving.
