Troopers have identified a man killed in a head-on crash in Craven County Monday night.
According to the Highway Patrol, 20-year-old Quanshae Gardner, of New Bern, was killed in the crash on Highway 43 at Batchelder Road, just north of New Bern. The wreck happened at about 8:45 p.m. Monday.
Troopers said Gardner was traveling southbound on Highway 43 when he crossed the center line and hit a Ford Taurus traveling northbound. Gardner's green Toyota Camry then went off the right side of the road and overturned in a ditch.
Gardner was ejected from his vehicle and died at the scene, said investigators.
The other driver, 51-year-old Teresa Coltrain, of Vanceboro, was taken to CarolinaEast Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries, troopers said. She was later released.
Investigators said there was no evidence that alcohol was involved in the crash.
