— A Robeson County man was killed Wednesday night after his car skidded off an icy road in Hoke County, authorities said Thursday.

Calvin Baldwin, 48, of Lumber Bridge, was headed southwest on Old Wire Road at about 7:45 p.m. when he lost control of his car and rolled down an embankment, authorities said.

Baldwin, who wasn't wearing a seat belt, was thrown from the car and killed, authorities said. He was the only person in the car.

Authorities said they don't suspect drugs or alcohol as a factor in the crash.
