One person is dead after a wreck at the intersection of Spence Avenue and Royall Avenue this morning.

The victim is not being identified publicly until family members can be notified by authorities.

Police are investigating the accident, as exactly how the sequence of events transpired was not immediately clear.

Capt. LeAnn Rabun of the Goldsboro Police Department said police believe the car was heading northbound on Spence Avenue when it ran off the opposite side of the road and went into the woodline.

The car reportedly continued to travel through the woodline before flipping several times, taking out a tree and landing on its side between the railroad tracks and Royall Avenue.

The tree the car hit fractured, with part of it coming down across the railroad tracks and the another part hitting the roof of a man's truck before coming to rest on the opposite side of Royall Avenue near Applebee's.

Wayne County EMS and Goldsboro firefighters responded to the scene alongside the police department when the call was dispatched at about 11:20 a.m.

Firefighters had to force open the door of the vehicle before pulling out the victim, who was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police closed down Royall Avenue at Spence Avenue and Landmark Drive for several hours, and remained on the scene at the time of this report.

Authorities initially tried to block the view of the overturned car with firetrucks as people looked on and tried to see what was happening.

Officers then cordoned off the scene with yellow crime scene tape and told several people to move away from the scene when the crowd continued to strafe back and forth to try and get a look at what was going on.

Information on what caused the wreck was not immediately available.
