Police spokesman Jim Sughrue said in a statement that 59-year-old Pareshkumar Shah was traveling west on the highway when his car was hit by an SUV in the wrong lane Sunday night. Shad died at WakeMed Hospital in Raleigh.

Police say 40-yea-rold Carlos Martinez Gonzales of Charlotte has been charged with felony death by vehicle.
