Troopers say a 24-year-old man was killed in a crash early Saturday morning in Johnston County.
It happened at Old Fairground Road at Massengill Pond Road around 3:15 a.m, less than three miles away from the driver's home.
Authorities say Lucas Daniel Currin, of Benson, struck a warning sign, crossed over a driveway, and struck a pine tree. He later succumbed to his injuries.
According to the property owner, who heard and saw everything, Currin hit the tree head-on.
