SHALLOTTE—A Claremont man was killed Tuesday night in a single-vehicle wreck near Shallotte.
But investigators do not know if 70-year-old William Craven Kerns, of 5988 Lookout Height Drive, Claremont, was killed from injuries sustained in the wreck, or from what family members told investigators was a previous medical condition, N.C. State Highway Patrol 1st Sgt. A.E. Morris said.
“The M.E. is still trying to determine the cause of death. He may have died of a medical issue, but he was involved in a wreck,” Morris said.
