Officials say speed was a factor in a fatal crash Friday on southbound Interstate 85 that left a Charlotte man dead and a second person injured.
The wreck occurred around 3 p.m. Friday near exit 23 in McAdenville.
Officials say a Ford truck driven by 71-year-old Carl Lee Clegg of Charlotte struck a yellow work truck from behind causing the Ford truck to leave the roadway. Clegg’s truck hit a guardrail, travelled across the interstate and then rolled over into a concrete median before coming to wreck.
Clegg and a second person was taken to the hospital after the wreck, but the Charlotte man later died from his injuries.
The other injured person is said to have sustained non-life threatening injuries.
Speed was a factor in the crash, officials say, and the results of a toxicology test are pending.
No charges are expected to be filed.
