PITT COUNTY -

The Highway Patrol is investigating a rollover wreck that killed a 60-year-old Pitt County man.

According to Trooper William Brown, Curtis Andrew Scott, of Ayden, was driving his van on Weyerhaeuser Road outside Ayden at about 2:44 p.m. Sunday. But Scott's vehicle somehow went off the road to the right. The victim then over-corrected, went off the road to the left, overturned his van, and was ejected from the vehicle, Trooper Brown said. Scott died at the scene.

Scott was not wearing a seat belt, Trooper Brown added. A cause of the wreck was unknown. No one else was in the victim's van and no other vehicles were involved, Trooper Brown said.
