Man killed in Bringle Ferry crash identified

SALISBURY – Authorities have identified a Salisbury man who died in a wreck on Bringle Ferry Road late Saturday night.
Bret Maverick Earnhardt, 47, who lived on Bringle Ferry, was thrown from his car after running off the road and hitting a culvert.
He was not wearing a seatbelt, said Trooper J. Page with the N.C. Highway Patrol
Page said Earnhardt was driving west, near 3445 Bringle Ferry Road, when his dark blue 1994 Nissan crossed the center line and ran off the road to the left.
The car hit a ditch and then a culvert, going airborne before coming back down onto the roadway, he said. Earnhardt was ejected and died on the scene.
Heavy rain had moved into the area shortly before the crash, which happened around 11:30 p.m. Saturday. Page said it’s possible the vehicle hydroplaned on the wet road.
Originally, firefighters on the scene reported finding a motorcyle helmet and were looking for a second victim.
Page said there were actually several motorcycle on the ground nearby, but after a search of the area, firefighters confirmed that there were no other victims of the accident.
