UPDATE: Man dead after car, tractor-trailer crash on Carolina Beach Rd.

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Wilmington police say a man is dead after a car and tractor-trailer crashed on Carolina Beach Road Monday morning.

Police say the driver who died ran a stop sign from Wellington Avenue onto Carolina Beach Road.

That’s when witnesses say the car went under the truck, and was dragged about a block down the road, until the tractor-trailer stopped near Hardee’s.

Investigators say the victim was involved in a hit and run in the area, and was trying to get away from the driver he hit, when he crashed into the tractor-trailer.

Investigators say the man who died was in his mid-30’s.

Both southbound lanes (toward Monkey Junction) were closed for a few hours as crews cleared the scene.

The investigation is ongoing, and no charges have been filed.
