A man whose girlfriend died after
their car was hit by a train earlier this month in Cary is facing felony charges
of manslaughter in her death.
Benny Derrick Dimery, 24, of
Laurinburg, is charged with involuntary manslaughter in the death of his
girlfriend, 22-year-old Lauren Ashley Webb, also of Laurinburg.
Webb was killed Jan. 2 when the car
Dimery was driving was hit by an Amtrak train at the intersection of Maynard
and Old Apex roads.
Witnesses said they saw Dimery's
Mitsubishi Galant on the tracks before it was hit by a train. Cary Police say
it is believed that Dimery attempted to bypass the crossing arm.
The Town of Cary said Dimery is
expected to recover from his injuries. If convicted, he could face 33 to 41
months in jail.
Amtrak services are delayed in Morrisville due to a freight trail derailment, authorities said.
