GREENVILLE – A passenger in a Disabled American Veterans van from Rocky Mount was killed on N.C. 43 south of Falkland Wednesday after a car making an illegal pass caused a four-car wreck, according to the N.C. Highway Patrol.

The van from the Twin Counties 55 DAV Chapter in Rocky Mount was traveling north on the highway near Short Bridge Road when it collided with an SUV, according to Highway Patrol reports.

The van overturned in a ditch, and a male passenger was killed. The driver was transported to Vidant Medical Center. The names of the driver and passenger have not been released. No other people were injured.

The wreck occurred at 11:19 a.m., Sgt. Gary Weaver said at the scene.

A black vehicle that fled the scene was cresting a hill when it entered the southbound lanes to pass a northbound traffic, Weaver said. The car was in a no-passing zone.

A southbound Ford Expedition braked for the black vehicle, and a southbound Dodge Dakota hit the Ford from behind, Weaver said. The Ford spun into the northbound lane and hit the DAV van causing it to overturn in the ditch. The Ford then hit a Honda passenger car that was following the van.

The driver of the Honda was Najee Hanson, 19, a Pitt Community College student traveling home after class.

“I seen a gray or black car that was in front of me try to pass another car that was in front of me and traffic was coming,” Hanson said at the scene.

Hanson said he thought the car was a Toyota four-door, but he was not sure.

Next, he saw the white Ford Expedition out of control.

“I tried to slow down, but I couldn’t, so we ran into each other,” he said.

Hanson and another man ran to the van. Two people inside were alive and yelling for help, he said.

“I hear them screaming, ‘Help, help, we’re in pain,'" he said. The doors to the van would not open, he said. “We were helpless.”

He later learned the passenger had died.

“When I heard that, it made me appreciate life much more,” he said.

An alert has been issued for area law enforcement officers to be on the lookout for a black vehicle, though little else is known about it.

Witnesses are urged to call the Highway Patrol in the Greenville office at 252-752-6118.

“This wreck should have never, ever happened,” Weaver said.

The black car made an illegal pass, and other vehicles were following too closely, he said. The speed limit on that section of highway is 55 mph.

A man and woman were in the Ford. They were on the way to a doctor’s office in Greenville. One person was in the Honda and another was in the Dodge.

The DAV van was a transport vehicle. It was not known if it had been traveling from the Veterans Clinic in Greenville.

“It’s sad any time someone loses a life in a collision,” Weaver said. “Someone didn’t use good sense in passing.”

Replay Abou Nike Air Force one mode: take the road to merger integration issues that need to pay attention [i = s] more posts by HowNet to edit 2014-5-22 23:58 [/ i] more HowNet May 22 news, as yet submitted 2012 financial statements, has experienced a lot of twists Nike Air Max and turns Abou official delisting on Nike Shox the NYSE to enter the OTCBB (OTC transaction, namely the Pink Sheets). For China's education industry practitioners Nike Air Max 2015 Men and relevant Womens Nike Lunar Hyperdunk Low investment Nike Air Max 2014 Women institutions, AMB is undoubtedly Nike Air Max 2013 (Womens) a typical case: a means of purely financial acquisitions, packaging market, the final and had to withdraw from the market. Behind this case, what can bring enlightenment industry? Let's look at the past five years, AMB has experienced what: Abou education Nike Air Max 2015 Women founded in 1999, initially mainly for network rollout business education platform, completed several rounds of financing. 2007 to Nike Shoes 2010, in order to 'lifelong learning' concept, AMB Air Max for Men started merger nationwide, from vocational education and training institutions to K12, to the full-time school, a long chain. M \u0026 A, Abou generally choose the top three local training institutions, a prerequisite for negotiations is 'half cash and half shares, listed together', due to the dispersion of education and training industry, many regional institutions difficult scale development. That time, after New Oriental market, soaring stock prices, the founders of these institutions, they will undoubtedly have considerable allure. Until September 30, 2010, AMB acquired nearly 30 cases at a cost of over 1.4 billion yuan. 2010 AMB listed stocks good market fundamentals, the stock climbed to $ 14 a share, but in 2011, as the crisis takes stock AMB shares fell to around Lebron James Shoes $ 8. May 2012, AMB announced that due to the adjustment of software sales revenue recognition and bad debts, can not be scheduled to submit annual reports, stock prices have fallen sharply; in July 2012, AMB Q1 Quarterly Bulletin revealed that the growth rate fell sharply its vocational education, at the same time, took only eight months of CFO departure, the stock dropped to around $ 2. Air Jordan Outlet After the Nike Air Max 2014 Men share Nike Air Max 2013 Women price diving, along with the integration of the acquisitions to Abou huge crisis began to emerge, the first away from the Beijing headquarters of Hunan begins. Changsha AMB acquired with l Nike Air Max 2012 Women Lake Nike Air Max 2015 Women school founder, long Shaya Wong Hing Estate Development Co., Ltd. and the media broke the news: 'The acquisition of AMB is a fraud.' According to Wong and presentation, AMB Property signed an agreement with the Asia-order 'Half Cash + half stock' to acquire the same l Lake School. Abou commitment, IPO listing can achieve 3 to 5 times the premium value of the stock held by Wong and the hands will reach 250 million to 4.2 billion. According to the SEC's commitments under purchase-and AMB, depositary receipts in 180 days after the end of the lock after the listing of shares can be converted to free trade. Wang Zhong and said that after the lock-up period, the conversion of Abou ignored his request, not Air Max for adidas Crazyquick Women to apply. In early 2012, Abou education stock has been $ 2.3 / share fluctuates around, which further stimulated the 'packaged' regional institutions founder. In Wong Nike Air Jordan and, for example, the equivalent of the original value of 83.88 million yuan of stock market value had fallen to 18 million yuan. Assets shrink, while also expanding both conflicts - Wang Zhong and said that the agreement, Asia-home to retain 30% of the bid to host school, but in fact he entered the school, AMB has Nike Shoes Global been banned. In early 2013, Abou education suffered a lawsuit, Nike Air Max 2014 Women litigation the financial fraud of US investors. But Abou obviously do not pay attention to these: Huang Gang, vice president of AMB Group, the media, said:. Womens Nike Air Max 2013 Men Nike LeBron X 'These schools go broke, and little Abou brand integration relationship do make some AMB merger integration team to leave, Jingcai the founder of their official team has withdrawn the AMB. You sold me 100 percent, Air Jordan Heels Nike Air Max 2013 and I would like to change Nike Air Max 2013 V Women anything to change anything. '2012, AMB doubts on the outside Nike Basketball are no longer respond to, and does Womens Nike Zoom Hyperflight PRM not disclose financial figures. In early 2013, AMB shares fell below $ 1, on the verge of delisting. Abou major shareholder is three fund Macquarie, GLAsia and Avenue, holding more than half. Among the pile of investment funds to maximize the benefits of the approach, the stock price rose after the exit of the secondary market. And one of the consequences of AMB shares plunge triggered by institutional shareholders and management is the contradiction between the increasingly prominent, only the later series of the game. AMB's model certainly nowhere it? Not by acquisition of high-quality regional bodies bigger and stronger, in the education and training industry is not a dead end. Huang Gang also told the media table over, AMB's example is Procter \u0026 Gamble. Procter \u0026 Gamble's model, brand parent strong enough on its various sub-brands to provide Nike Air Max support brands and systems, so that different levels of brand long industry chain, are able to under the umbrella of P \u0026 G's own development. In the education sector, this model can be replicated. So, the problem lies in where? First, the education and training industry, shaping a brand, build their brand, reputation, influence the formation, we need a few years now, the industry-recognized national brand of education, and only one of New Oriental. As a short history of the brand, the parent brand Abou education in the Area was acquired institutions, such as Hunan Province, it is a weak brand, its influence is far weaker than the acquired Cheap Nike Free Outlet sub-brands. Unable to provide the parent brand endorsement, and effective management system, is the 'Abou model' suffered the first threshold. In addition, Abou education also forced to leave the original founders of the acquired institution institution within 18 months (or to the group office, but taking into account regional reasons, less likely), education is highly dependent on the managers of the industry, an area Gene and operating-type institutions, by the founder of profound influence, the founder of the exodus, itself will make an institution unrest. Moreover, the stock price fell, the founders looked at all their net worth shrink ninety percent, it is difficult to accept, so only extreme way by the media, litigation, to recover the equity.

However, Amazon launched a series of Amazon Advertising Platform and Amazon Mobile Ad Network suffice advertising strategy in the Amazon interior has new upgrade, and not just limited to internal resources inside the station and sell advertising, but want to get involved in a broader market for online advertising. This is a bigger market will inevitably erode the interests of existing giant, Amazon also has its own strengths and resources, thus causing widespread concern in the industry. A spokeswoman for Amazon in an interview with reporters, said: 'We are taking advantage of Amazon's world-class personalized recommendation technology, no user data is unparalleled and interactive video content, and strive to build a new generation of Air Jordan 6 advertising products.' And this a new generation of advertising products is based on the powerful demand-side platform (DSP) of real-time bidding (RTB) advertising model, the real interest-based advertising presentation. RTB (Real Time Bidding, real-time bidding) is carried out based on each ad exposure on the auction, is to appear every once PV show auction, bid high ad will be seen this PV. Compared with the traditional advertising model, RTB purchased audience rather than advertising. If you know in advance the interests of the audience, then accordingly to real-time advertising will no doubt get the best return. In RTB mode, traffic and click-through rate will no longer be an important way to measure the user sees after behavioral advertising is the most important, so RTB represents a more rational, more efficient, and more advanced advertising way, is the main direction of future development of the Air Jordan 4 Retro advertisement. This advertising model is generally the process is this: a website providing real-time bidding (RTB) of advertising, when Nike Shoes a user visits the site, the site automatically collects information about the user's cookies and the information is sent to the ad trading platform, Ad Exchange forwarded to all incoming access to DSP, DSP will be notified of the received information with its own user database information than to confirm the user's identity, property and hobbies, then according to the appropriate ad serving needs to bid.

For Amazon, the past 18 years, it tracks the thousands of millions of online shoppers browse on Amazon, search and purchase records, not only in the process accumulated a large amount of user data, and develop a strong recommendation Air Jordan 17 algorithm Amazon recommend using these algorithms for the consumer a lot for the goods, which is Amazon's core competence. Amazon now these advantages can easily migrate to online advertising, to create powerful real-time ad auction-based products shopping massive user data for advertisers will be advertising at the right site, the right time to show to the right consumers. When users visit a website Amazon, Amazon's data can help identify where this came from, what recently purchased goods in the Amazon, such as diapers. So for this situation, put maternal and child products in advertising on this site promotional information might be most appropriate. Compared to other DSP, Amazon has a consumer purchase information, which is compared to the simple cookies undoubtedly more valuable. Therefore, this data is based behind the strong technical strength and support of real-time bidding ad products will attract a lot of advertisers, a good prospect. Today, when we browse the Web, you can see most of the ad-based Amazon Amazon data, but the future we might have a lot of opportunity to see the Amazon-based Coca-Cola's advertising data.
