— David Lloyd, 29, of Ashbrook Drive in Wilson, died Wednesday in a wreck on Interstate 95.

Lloyd was traveling north near the Nash-Wilson County line when a tire blew out on his green Ford Explorer, forcing him off the road near mile marker 126 just before noon, according to the state Highway Patrol. He over-corrected and flipped the SUV, which came to rest on its roof. Lloyd was ejected from the vehicle and died at the scene, troopers said.

All northbound lanes of the interstate were closed until about 1:30 p.m. while emergency crews and investigators cleared the scene.

Lloyd was alone in his car and no other vehicles were involved, troopers said.
