VASS, N.C. -

One man died early Saturday morning in a single-vehicle wreck in Vass, according to authorities.

A Jeep driven by 23-year-old Richard Chad Camp ran off the road and slammed into a tree at approximately 5 a.m. Saturday.

The wreck occurred on Furr Road, between Aiken and Youngs roads, less than a 10th of a miles from Camp's home.

"Drinking and being unbelted were definitely factors," said Highway Patrol First Sgt. Eric Ritter.

Emergency officials said Camp was pinned in the vehicle and died before he could be extracted.
