CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- A North Carolina man died in a car accident Thursday night after his vehicle rolled over in Charleston.
William Howard Lee, 52, of Maiden, N.C., was driving along Greenbrier Street when he ran off the roadway and struck a utility pole and bridge near the Go-Mart by Coonskin Park, according to Sgt. Shawn Williams with the Charleston Police Department.
Lee's vehicle rolled over and landed on its top in a creek at about 11:30 p.m., he said.
Lee was in town visiting relatives.
Power was out in the area for a short time because the utility pole broke in half.
