Man dies walking across busy Moyock road
The Highway Patrol says a man in his mid-20s was killed when he was hit by a vehicle that left the scene Saturday around 5 a.m on Puddin Ridge Road.
The man’s identity has not been released, and state troopers are asking the public for help in trying to find the vehicle involved.
In December, 23-year-old Zachary Story of Moyock died after being hit by a passing motorist.
The Highway Patrol did not charge the driver of the car that struck Story, who according to family members had been at a nearby restaurant and decided to walk to his home in Wildwood Estates.
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, near the same location as this past Saturday’s hit-and-run.
Puddin’ Ridge Road connects N.C. 168 to several large neighborhoods and the entrance to the former Blackwater compound, and is one of the busiest secondary roads in northern Currituck County.
