Soldier drowns after car crashes in Jordan Lake

CHATHAM COUNTY (WTVD) — A soldier drowned early Wednesday morning after his car was found in Jordan Lake, according to authorities.

Trooper Greg Ingram told ABC11 that 21-year-old Anthony Thomas Fico of Cary was driving west on Martha’s Chapel Road in northern Chatham County, when he blew through a stop sign at Farrington Road and hit a guardrail.

The North Carolina Highway Patrol said Fico was going 60 mph in a 45 mph speed zone, forcing his silver 2012 Ford Mustang to go airborne and crash into the lake.

He later drowned in the lake, unable to survive the crash. While Fico’s friends said they fear he took his own life, investigators are still trying to figure out if it was intentional.
