A 20-year-old man was killed Sunday when his small car ran into the
rear of a truck on Parkstown Road about four miles east of Goldsboro,
the Highway Patrol said.
The victim was identified as Christopher Eric Scott of 4695 Hull
Road, LaGrange. He was taken by a Goldsboro Rescue Squad ambulance
to Wayne Memorial Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
The other motorist, Robert Johnson Jr., 39, of Parkstown Road,
LaGrange, had made a left turn from Race Track Road and had traveled
133 feet on Parkstown Road, Trooper Kenneth Gardner said.
Johnson's westbound 1971 GMC truck was struck in the rear by Scott's
1988 Honda car, Gardner said. Both vehicles stopped in the road.
No charges were filed.
Johnson was traveling about 30 mph, and Scott's speed was estimated
at 70 mph from evidence at the scene, the trooper said. The speed
limit on the two-lane road is 55.
The fatality was the 27th on Wayne County roads and streets this year.
