WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Wilmington Police say a man is dead after his car and tractor-trailer crashed on Carolina Beach Road this morning.

Police have identified the driver as Frankie Eugene Williams, 37, of Raleigh. They say he died after he ran a stop sign from Wellington Ave. onto Carolina Beach Road around 8 a.m.

Witnesses say Williams’s Mercedes went under the truck, and dragged the car about a block down the road, until the tractor-trailer stopped near Hardee’s.

Investigators say Williams was involved in a hit and run in the area, and was trying to get away from the driver he hit when he crashed into the tractor-trailer.

Both southbound lanes of Carolina Beach Road were closed for a few hours as crews cleared the scene.

The investigation continues, but no charges have been filed.
