— A 61-year-old Virginia man died in a wreck on Interstate 95 in Halifax County Sunday afternoon.

State troopers said David Boyd, of Alexandria, lost control of his vehicle while going south on I-95, near N.C. Highway 481, outside Enfield, around 1 p.m. Boyd ran off the road to the left, over-corrected and ran off the left side of the road again, flipping his vehicle.

One other person was injured in the wreck, but that person's identity and extent of injuries was not released.

Both sides of I-95 were shut down for about two hours after the wreck, backing up traffic for up to 15 miles.
