DREXEL — A Morganton man died after overturning his car Wednesday night.
Tyronne Antoine Davis, 41, was driving his Chrysler Sebring east on U.S. 70 near Drexel when he ran off the road to the right at around 8:55 p.m., according to a statement from Master Trooper J.S. Swagger with the North Carolina State Highway Patrol. Davis then overcorrected, crossed the center line, ran off the road to the left, and hit a culvert, causing the car to overturn, Swagger said.
Davis, who wasn’t wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash, died at the scene. Alcohol does not appear to be a factor in the crash, Swagger said.
