A Williamston man was killed after driving a wrecker into several trees on NC Highway 99 near Plymouth monday morning.
Stanley Smallwood Jr., 22, was operating a wrecker belonging to Roy's Service Center in Windsor where he worked part-time while attending college at night. Smallwood died at the scene. He leaves behind a wife and small child.
The accident occurred approximately 10:15 a.m. According the the NC State Highway Patrol, it looked like he ran off the right side of the road and then came back on and ran off of the left side into several trees. There were no witnesses to the accident.
After a humbling recovery, the wrecker was moved to our impound yard where it could be secured out of the public's view. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family.
