A Nash County man died Monday evening when his pickup truck was hit by an oncoming car on N.C. 42 near N.C. 222 in Johnston County, the State Highway Patrol said.
Troopers said Louis Brandon Howell, 25, of Whitley Road was driving the pickup west on N.C. 42 when a car driven by Amanda Leigh-Ann Allen, 20, of Triston Court in Kenly hit it.
Allen was headed east a little before 6:30 p.m. when she went off the right shoulder, over-corrected and crossed the center line into the westbound lanes, troopers said.
Allen’s condition was not available.
Troopers said they were consulting with the Johnston County District Attorney’s Office to decide whether any charges should be filed.
