One dead after overnight crash on W.T. Harris Blvd

Man killed in crash identified

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WBTV) - Charlotte Mecklenburg Police are investigating a crash that left one man dead early Saturday morning.

The accident happened at the intersection of W. T. Harris Boulevard and Sharon Amity Road at 4 a.m.

When emergency officials arrived on scene, they found a 2008 Infiniti G35 overturned on its roof. Officers say the Infiniti hit a power pole.

The driver was pronounced dead at the scene. He has since been identified as 31-year-old Glenville Norman Walker.

There were no other occupants in the vehicle.

Preliminary investigation reveals that the Infiniti was traveling south on East W.T. Harris at a high rate of speed. The vehicle entered a left curve in the roadway, lost control and ran off the right side of the road resulting in a roll-over accident at North Sharon Amity Road.

The victim in this crash was reportedly not wearing a seat-belt.

Speed is a contributing factor in this crash and alcohol use is suspected, according to police.

Eastbound E. W.T. Harris was closed at that intersection. It reopened later Saturday morning.

This crash is currently under investigation. Any person who witnessed the crash or has information about this case is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 704-334-1600 or Detective Nathan Crum at 704-432-2169.
