Robert Anthony Tutor Jr., 23, of White Oak Road, died Thursday night when a car he was driving went off Government Road, struck the edge of a ditch and flipped over, the State Highway Patrol said.
Troopers cited speed and alcohol as contributing factors.
Tutor was thrown from a 1990 Chevrolet and died at the scene. A woman riding with Tutor, Brittany Michelle Madey, 19, of Antelope Lane, was reported to be in serious condition Friday at WakeMed Hospital in Raleigh.
Troopers said it appeared that the car crossed the center line and went off the roadway, hitting the ditch.
The highway patrol had cited Tutor on April 7 for driving while impaired, driving with a license that had been revoked after a DWI arrest and not stopping after an accident.
