A Lillington man died Saturday in a single-vehicle wreck on Joel Johnson Road in Harnett County.

Sixty-three-year-old Freddie Lee Burnett was driving down the road at 2:16 p.m. when troopers say he ran off of the roadway near Stockyard Road. Burnett overcorrected, crossed the center line and veered off of the road again, striking a tree on the passenger side, according to troopers.

He was the sole occupant of the car and succumbed to his injuries.
