Roanoke Rapids police are still trying to determine who was driving a vehicle in which one person died and one was seriously injured Friday night, Chief Chuck Hasty said.

Jermaine Garner, 28, of Seaboard, was listed in a report by Officer Alex Green as the deceased occupant. Rodale Latrone Daniels, 23, of Pleasant Hill, was listed as the other occupant and is currently in critical condition at an undisclosed medical facility, Hasty said.
According to the report, around 11:40 p.m., the driver of the vehicle was traveling south on Smith Church Road at an estimated 70 miles per hour in a 45 mile per zone. The vehicle crossed the centerline and left the roadway and jumped the curb.
The driver’s side of the vehicle, a 2008 Ford, slid toward a tree. The driver’s side door struck the tree causing severe damage.
Green notes in the report neither occupants were restrained. They were both located in the back seat of the vehicle. They were extricated from the Ford and taken to Halifax Regional. Green’s report notes the surviving occupant was alert at the time of transport.
Alcohol use is suspected.
