One man dead after six-vehicle wreck in Garner

GARNER (WTVD) -- One man is dead and another charged with drunken driving after a deadly six-vehicle crash Thursday in Garner.

Police say it happened about 3:45 p.m. at Vandora Springs Road and Timber Drive.

Police are still investigating, but they said a 2010 Honda Accord driven by 74-year-old John Bergman of Garner ran a red light and crashed into a 2008 Buick waiting in the left-turn lane at the intersection.

The driver of the Buick, 56-year-old Tyrone Pugh, of Angier, was taken to WakeMed, where he was pronounced dead.

Bergman was charged with DWI and running a red light. Officers haven't yet determined whether speed was a factor.

Four other cars were involved in the accident, but the people in those vehicles were not seriously hurt.

Garner Police are still reconstructing the accident scene and ask that any witnesses or others with information contact the department at (919) 772-8810.
