1 dead, 3 hurt in head-on Catawba crash

A 33-year-old man was killed in a head-on crash that injured three other people early Saturday in Catawba County, according to the N.C. Highway Patrol.

Troopers identified the victim as Clinton Daniel Tolley. They said the car he was driving crashed into another vehicle about 12:15 a.m. on Slanting Bridge Road, near N.C. 150 in the southeast part of the county.

Troopers said Tolley’s car apparently crossed the center line and hit the other vehicle. It is not clear how many of the injured victims were in the other car. Authorities said the three suffered serious injuries.

The Highway Patrol is continuing to investigate the wreck.
