A Shallotte man died Dec. 1 when he crashed his truck off a bridge in Wayne County.
N.C. Highway Patrol 1st Sgt. Jerry Burton said Craig Moore, 30, was dead at the scene.
Burton said Moore was driving on U.S. 117 when he ran off the road and slammed through the bridge guardrail onto N.C. 55 below.
The wreck remains under investigation, but officials say Moore may have fallen asleep behind the wheel.
No other vehicles were involved, according to the Highway Patrol.
