JACKSONVILLE, Onslow County — One of three people critically injured in a crash in Jacksonville last Thursday has passed away. A man already accused of DWI and driving on a suspended license is allegedly to blame.
The Daily News in Jacksonville reports Tracey Legg, 46, died of her injuries Saturday, a state trooper told the paper. Legg and Marine Kevin Grajeda, 26, were helping a driver, Madeliene Hobbs, who had been involved in a crash on Rocky Run Road.
Minutes later, troopers said a truck driven by James Henry Royster, 78, came through the intersection, striking Grajeda and Legg as well as Hobbs' car. Grajeda and Hobbs were taken to Vidant Medical Center in Greenville and New Hanover Regional Medical Center in Wilmington on Friday. Troopers have not provided an update on their condition.
Royster is currently in the Onslow County Detention Center. He is scheduled to appear in court Feb. 19 for separate charges.
