Driver in fatal crash driving with revoked license

A driver involved in a fatal crash was driving on a revoked license. The driver, a 24-year-old man from Supply, was charged with murder in connection with the crash.

The 24-year-old has been charged with two counts of second-degree murder, aggravated felony death by motor vehicle, and driving with a revoked license. He was charged in relation to an accident that occurred on February 2 in Brunswick County that killed an 84-year-old man and 87-year-old woman.

According to a warrant, the 24-year-old was also charged with felony aggravated serious injury by vehicle for injuring a female victim in the accident while "subject to an impairing substance." The female victim suffered "injuries to the lower torso requiring surgery and hospitalization," according to the warrant.

The man charged in this case was also convicted of DWI in New Hanover County back in 2011.

The 24-year-old was also charged with driving while license revoked in the accident from February 2. On January 14, the same man surrendered his license for 30 days after he was charged with DWI by Shallotte Police. According to arrest records, the man's blood alcohol content was well above the 0.08 limit.

The 24-year-old is currently behind bars under $1.5 million bond. His record dates back to 2009 for convictions involving assault with a deadly weapon, assault by pointing a gun, larceny and breaking and entering.

According to state police who responded to the accident, the 24-year-old man maneuvered his vehicle left of center on the road, striking the victim's vehicle head-on. Authorities are still waiting for results of a toxicology test that will determine if blood and alcohol were in the 24-year-old's system at the time of the crash.

Driving on a revoked or suspended license is a serious crime, but it becomes even more serious when involved in an accident that results in an injury or death to someone else on the road.
