A 23-year-old Moyock man walking in the middle of Puddin Ridge Road Sunday night was struck and killed by a passing car.
Zachary Story of Providence Drive was walking along the center line of Puddin Ridge Road in Moyock, when he was hit by the car just before 9 p.m., Trooper J.R. Chappell of the N.C. State Highway Patrol reported.
According to family members, Story had been at a nearby restaurant and decided to walk to his home in Wildwood Estates.
Chappell said Story was wearing a camouflage jacket and blue jeans and was headed in the same direction as the car that hit him while he walked past the Quail Run neighborhood.
Like Story, the driver of the car is a resident of the same neighborhood, one of several located just off the narrow two-lane road that intersects with N.C. 168 next to the Moyock Post Office.
Chappell said charges will not be filed against the driver.
