VASS, NC -- The new interim manager in Moore County has been killed in a wreck.
The North Carolina Highway Patrol says 68-year-old James Layman Westbrook Jr. died at the scene of the wreck late Tuesday afternoon near Vass.
A patrol report says Westbrook was driving a sedan that collided with a tractor-trailer.
Neither of the people in the 18-wheeler was hurt.
No charges have been filed.
The Moore County Board of Commissioners had named Westbrook as the interim manager Nov. 20. He was to replace Cary McSwain, who is retiring Friday.
