Crash In Hudson Claims Lenoir Man’s Life

The Hudson Police Department is investigating a fatal traffic crash involving a single vehicle that occurred Saturday (May 4). The deceased is 66-year-old Cloyde Alan Greene of Lenoir.

At approximately 11:30 p.m. Saturday, a 1998 Chevrolet S10 pickup truck was traveling north on U.S. 321 near Whispering Pines Drive when it ran off the roadway to the right, striking a speed limit sign and ditch, causing the vehicle to roll on its side, before coming to rest.

The driver of the vehicle, Cloyde Alan Greene, was pronounced dead at the scene by Caldwell County EMS. No other injuries were reported. A preliminary investigation shows that the vehicle left the roadway during heavy rainfall, which may have contributed to the crash.
