Police investigate woman killed in wreck, man’s body found on I-85 in Davidson Co.

DAVIDSON COUNTY, N.C. — Authorities are investigating two deaths in Davidson County Monday morning.

The N.C. Highway Patrol first responded to a fatal single-vehicle wreck around 12:40 a.m. on I-85 near U.S. 64 in Davidson County.

Officers say Courtney Michelle Brown, 33, of Lexington, was killed in the crash.

Brown was driving the wrong way on an entrance ramp when her car ran off the road and struck a tree.

It was reported that she was driving 50 mph at the time of the wreck and was not wearing a seat belt.

A few hours later, around 6 a.m., deputies from the Davidson County Sheriff’s Office responded to reports of a body on the side of I-85 in the area of the earlier accident, according to a press release.

The man appeared to have head injuries and was dead on the scene. The exact cause of death is being investigated.

Authorities say the woman in the crash and the man on the side of the road were seen together earlier in the evening.

Both bodies have been sent to the medical examiner’s office.

The investigating is ongoing.

    Well, sending them to the medical examiners office isn’t gonna help, They don’t do their jobs as it is.

      I think you are talking about the people who do lab tests for DNA and Alcohol amounts… that is a different department. The M.E. does do their job. As for the rest of you… why bother speculating? We may never know what happened and making guesses before they even release more information is just a sign of ignorance.

        Chucky,
        Your statement, by virtue of the two opening words, “I think”, is also indicative of your “speculating”; therefore rendering you as “ignorant” as the rest of us.

        Thank you for clarifying things that MOST of us, (including myself), are ignorant of!!! My earlier post, at 5:06, was intended as a response to You..Just inserted it in the wrong place…I apologize!!

      Another Heartbreaking tragedy; And i DO sympathize with your train of thought, But after the Horror of the Needless Carbon-Monoxide death of a child and near death of his mother, I TRUST that All NC medical Examiners are “On-The-Ball” now…. SURELY they are!!!!???

    Ok with what little info made available within this article. I believe that since the two were seen together earlier in the day, then in my own opinion and I state once more my “opinion” the two was riding together at the time of the accident. Possibly they were arguing which would explain why she was going the wrong way up the exit ramp, when either he or she realized the mistake she or maybe he jerked the wheel sending them down to hit tree. Then gets out an starts walking falling and dies later.

      Quick correction: Then he gets out and starts walking, just to fall/collapse to sercum to his own injuries.

        In Reality, In THIS case… Highly Possible,or MAYBE Probable!! we GET What you are saying…But still Doesn’t Help with the HURT for the Victims and Their FAMILIES and Their Friends.. Thank You, Chad, For BEING Human And CARING About OTHERS Pain!!!

        BUT I CANT UNDERSTAND IF HE WAS INJURED THAT BAD HOW COULD HE HAVE WALKED A MILE AND A HALF? OR THE FACT THAT NOONE SAW HIM ALONG THE ROAD WALKING! MAYBE ITS MORE TO THIS THAN ANYONE KNOW

    I was the one who called 911 for the dead man on the side of I-85 if u think he was walking for help why didn’t he walk up the ramp he was on for help? Well the truth is he was a mile from the car where she was. South of her on the northbound side of the highway. Also I think in my personal opion that he jump out of the car and killed his self or she pushed him out herself but no one will really know, but it’s a good guess. And out of guilt she killed herself probably the reason for no seatbelt.

    my opinion is maybe they got in to it he got out the car.. in another artical it stated he called for a ride for someone to come get him than the phone disconnected… so maybe she she got mad turned around hit him and.try to.make a run for it.. and todd i.notice u said u called the.police but actually.his son found him and called them..
