WISE — A 54-year-old Exeter man died of injuries sustained in a single-vehicle crash in Wise County on Wednesday.

The Virginia State Police reports a 2003 Chrysler Town and Country was traveling along Route 68 at around 5:30 p.m. when it ran off the right side of the road. The VSP believes the driver, Darrin K. Carter, over-corrected, causing the vehicle to veer back across the road, where it ran off the left side of the highway and struck a tree after going down an embankment.

The VSP said Carter was transported to Holston Valley Medical Center in Kingsport where he succumbed to his injuries later that evening. The crash remains under investigation.
