Victim identified

A man killed in a one-car wreck before dawn Sunday was identified Monday by the Highway Patrol as 25-year-old Daniel Schade of 1881 N.C. 111 North.

Schade was driving north at about 1:10 p.m. when he lost control of his speeding car, south of Daw Pate Road, the report said.

His passenger, Henry Lauture, 27, of Cuyler Best Road, also was injured. He was taken to Wayne Memorial Hospital, the report said. His condition was not immediately available.

Based on the evidence at the scene, State Trooper Robert Thaxton estimated Schade's speed at 125 mph. The speed limit on the two-lane road is 55 mph.

Thaxton said the car ran off the right side, struck a driveway culvert, became airborne, then landed in a yard and overturned several times before stopping in the southbound lane. The car traveled about 425 feet after it had run off the road, the trooper said.

The 2003 Nissan, valued at $25,000, was demolished. Damage to the Arnold Jones yard was estimated at $300.

Meanwhile, a young woman killed in a single-car wreck Sunday reportedly was seven months' pregnant. The victim, Shereise Shantel Walls, 23, of 207 Little Dove Road, Pikeville, died in the 6:15 a.m. crash on Gurley Dairy Road.
