WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — Police said a man was killed after he apparently ran a stop sign and crashed into another car Monday afternoon in Winston-Salem.
Travis Judon Huntley, 39, of Winston-Salem, was pronounced dead after the wreck which police said occurred around 4:20 p.m. at the intersection of Butler Street and Reynolds Park Road.
Officials said Huntley was driving a 1986 Pontiac Bonneville with a 3-year-old female passenger when he apparently ran a stop sign and collided with a 1998 Chevrolet Malibu.
Police said they found both cars in the front yard of a home in the 2600 block of Reynolds Park Road.
Officials said Huntley’s young passenger was treated and released from the hospital.
Authorities said four people were in the Malibu and they were all injured.
The Malibu’s 36-year-old female driver was listed in stable condition and her 24-year-old male front right passenger in critical/stable condition, officials said.
Authorities said the back middle passenger was treated and released from the hospital and the back right passenger received non-life-threatening injuries.
Police said both speed and alcohol appear to be factors. Officials said the Winston-Salem Police Department’s Traffic Enforcement Unit is investigating.
