The memorial service for a high school athlete killed in a single-vehicle accident on Monday has been scheduled for this weekend.
The service for Logan Wayne Grubb, 16, of the 2000 block of Willis Drive, Elizabeth City, will be held Saturday at 3 p.m. at Towne South Church of Christ, where, according to his obituary, he was very active in the youth group.
More details about the accident that claimed Grubb's life became available on Tuesday.
Correcting information released by the N.C. Highway Patrol on Monday, Trooper A.T. Miller said Grubb was traveling west on Berea Church Road in a silver Dodge truck when his vehicle ran off the road on the right.
According to Miller, Grubb overcorrected and his truck crossed the center line. The truck then ran off the road on the right and collided with a tree. Grubb's vehicle did not overturn as initially reported, Miller said.
The trooper confirmed that the teenager, the only occupant of the truck, was pronounced dead at the scene.
Miller said the speed Grubb's truck was traveling is still under investigation. He said road conditions were clear when the accident was reported at 10:30 a.m. Grubb was also wearing a seat belt, he said.
Miller said Grubb's death was the sixth traffic fatality so far this year in the Highway Patrol district that includes Pasquotank, Camden, Chowan and Perquimans counties.
According to his obituary, Grubb was the son of Darren Wayne Grubb and Stephanie Elaine Barber Grubb. In addition to his parents, he is survived by a sister, his grandparents, and several uncles, aunts and cousins.
A junior at Pasquotank County High School, Grubb played both football and basketball at the school. His family has asked that memorial donations be made to either the Pasquotank County High School Athletic Program at 1064 Northside Road, Elizabeth City, NC 27909, or to the Towne South Youth Group at 2224 Peartree Road, Elizabeth City, NC 27909.
Prior to his memorial service, visitation with Grubb's family will be held at Twiford Funeral Home's Memorial Chapel at 405 E. Church St., Elizabeth City, Friday from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. and afterward at Towne South Church of Christ.
