GUILFORD COUNTY, N.C. — One person was killed in a crash on Plainfield Road in Guilford County, according to Highway Patrol.

At about 11:24 a.m., troopers responded to a crash near the intersection of Northmore Trace and Plainfield Road, north of Greensboro.

A pick-up truck was heading west on Plainfield Road when it crossed left of the centerline and off the road, troopers say. The driver then overcorrected and ran off the road to the right, hitting a utility pole and overturning.

The driver, identified as Stephen Keith Dorsett, 58, of Greensboro, died at the scene.

Overcorrecting and not wearing a seat belt were the primary contributing factors of the fatality, highway patrol said.
