A Lumberton, North Carolina man has died after he was involved in a single car crash on NC 41 that injured four other people.
Sgt. M.V. Strickland of the North Carolina State Highway Patrol identified the victim as 41-year-old Levon Maurice LeGrand. He was involved in a crash on May 15 and the Highway Patrol was notified of his death on May 19.
The accident occurred just before 4:30 p.m. According to Strickland, 44-year-old Demetrius Jerard Singleton was driving a 2002 Ford passenger vehicle south on NC 41.
The vehicle went off the right side of the road, and Singleton then lost control of it. The car then went back across the road, turned over, and hit a building that housed about three vehicles.
Strickland said the vehicle finally came to rest on private property.
Singleton and his passengers were taken to UNC Health Southeastern’s medical center. The passengers were identified as Laketshia Jenkins, 42; Shaquana Jenkins, 18, and Nakia Jenkins, 16. The injuries were not deemed to be life-threatening.
LeGrand was not wearing a seatbelt and he was ejected from the vehicle. He was treated at Grand Strand Medical Center in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, but he later died as a result of his injuries.
Strickland said Nakia was also ejected from the vehicle and Shaquana was not restrained. Singleton reportedly said someone pulled out in front of him and he swerved to avoid a collision.
The Highway Patrol said no charges were filed in relation to the single car crash on NC 14.
