— A 41-year-old Zebulon man was stuck under a pickup truck after a wreck in Johnston County early Monday.

Troopers say the driver, whose name was not released, was speeding, lost control and drove off N.C. Highway 210 West near Benson around 1 a.m.

The passenger, Lee Mitchell, was pinned under the truck, according to Trooper PK Watkins. A helicopter took him to WakeMed where he was listed in fair condition.

The driver was also taken to the hospital and suffered non-life-threatening injuries, troopers said. It’s unclear if any charges will be filed.
