ONLY ON 3: Petrolino passenger hurt in crash that kills driver

READ MORE: Petrolino passenger hurt in crash that kills driver

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- She was one of the passengers in may's alleged huffing and driving crash in Wrightsville Beach earlier this year. Tonight Corine Silverberg is in intensive care in Raleigh after another crash that killed a man.

Police say Randi Petrolino and two friends were huffing dust cleaner while driving over the Wrightsville Beach draw bridge in May. Petrolino blacked out and hit a tree. All three were OK, but one of Petrolino's passengers, Corine Silverberg, was involved in another accident saturday night, and this time she was seriously hurt.

Raleigh Police say the 20-year-old Silverberg was a passenger in Louis Canino's car at about 10:30 p.m. Saturday. They were driving on Louisburg Road near Interstate 540 in Raleigh when police say Canino's car crossed the center line and hit support beams for a road sign.

Canino, 22, died at the scene. Silverberg is in the Neurointensive Care Unit at WakeMed in Raleigh. Another passenger, Ashley Waltman, is listed in serious condition.

Police say Canino was speeding, but it is unclear if alcohol was involved.

According to Wrightsville Beach Police, alcohol and chemical inhalants were factors in the May accident. Petrolino faces her second DWI charge along with seven other crimes in that crash, which add to an already extensive record.

Canino also had a lengthy rap sheet. He was charged with hit and run earlier this month. Last year, he was convicted of a drug charge. He has also been convicted of reckless driving, speeding, breaking and entering, theft and open container.

Police are still investigating Saturday's accident and may perform an autopsy on Canino to see if drugs or alcohol were involved.
