AYDEN — Officials with the N.C. State Highway Patrol said on Monday that a Grifton man killed in a fatal collision on Friday afternoon was not wearing his seatbelt.

The crash  took place on a southern Pitt County highway and left two others dead.

Eugene “Gene” Powell Fleming, 91, of 6410 Niblick Road in Grifton was driving a truck westbound on N.C. 102 about nine miles from Ayden, when he crossed the center line, overcorrected and ran off the road to the right. His vehicle struck Charles Edward Garris Jr, 53, of 4801 River Road, Washington, N.C.

Garris was standing on the shoulder of the road. Troopers have not stated a reason why he was not in his vehicle.

After striking Garris, Fleming’s truck sideswiped Garris’s truck before overturning several times. Fleming died after being ejected from the vehicle.

Fleming’s wife, Geraldine “Gerry” Gay Fleming, 89, who was a passenger in the truck, died from her injuries.  

The wreck occurred at 1:56 p.m., a state highway patrol official said.

Eugene Fleming retired from Dupont.  His wife, Geraldine, was a homemaker. Funeral arrangements for the Flemings are being handled by Wilkerson Funeral Home of Greenville.

Arrangements for Garris are pending at Trinity Memorial Funeral Home Inc.
