WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - Officers with the Wilmington Police Department are investigating a fatal accident that happened in the 1100 block of Martin Luther King, Jr. Parkway Friday morning just before 2:00.

According to Lucy Crockett with the Wilmington Police Department, Errol Dano Hosein, 23 of Hoboken, New Jersey, was killed in the crash.

The preliminary investigation revealed the driver of a tractor trailer was headed east on MLK Parkway at about 45 mph when Hosein darted into the path of the truck, according to police.
