TAYLORSVILLE — A Taylorsville man faces three charges after a fatal single-vehicle wreck in Alexander County.
Steven Ray Transeau, 33, was charged with felony death by vehicle, driving while impaired and driving while license revoked, says a news release from the State Highway Patrol.
The results of a blood test are pending.
The 2011 Ford Escape driven by Transeau was traveling on Church Road, near Sipe Road, when it ran off the road to the right and overturned several times Saturday, the release says.
Transeau's passenger, Joseph Frank Menscer, 44, of Hiddenite, was not wearing a seat belt and was thrown from the vehicle. He died at the scene.
Transeau suffered minor injuries, the release says.
