A crash Sunday night sent two men to the hospital, but some questions surrounding the crash remain, including who was driving.

The wreck happened at 8:46 p.m. Sunday on Adams Creek Road near Salter Harris Farm Road, according to Trooper J.H. Midgette of the N.C. Highway Patrol.

According to Theron McCabe, of the Harlowe Volunteer Fire Department, one man was ejected from the red 2003 Ford Mustang and the other was pinned inside until rescuers arrived.

That left questions about which of the two men - Cartier Generic Chardon Turner, 28, or Eugene Frazier, 25, both residents of Adams Creek Road – was driving.

“Neither one of them were cooperative to talk to them,” Midgette said following interviews with the men at CarolinaEast Medical Center in New Bern.

A hospital spokeswoman said both men were treated and released.

Midgette said the two men were traveling north on Adams Creek Road when they rounded a curve traveling 65 mph. He said the speed limit in the area of the crash is 45 mph.
