Teen killed, another injured in north Charlotte crash


CHARLOTTE, N.C. (FOX 46 CHARLOTTE) — A teenager was killed and another person was injured following a two-vehicle wreck overnight in north Charlotte, according to Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police. 

The crash happened at 11:28 p.m. Sunday, March 3 in the 4300 block of Gibbon Road. 

As officers arrived on scene, they found a teenage boy unresponsive inside a 2013 Toyota Corolla, which was overturned onto its side and off the roadway. A second vehicle, a 2015 Toyota Tundra, was in the road with an injured driver. 

The driver of the Toyota Corolla, Marcus Rene Horbachefsky, 19, was pronounced dead at the scene. Police said the driver of the Tundra, Eric Delaney Legrand, 46, was taken to Atrium Health Center for minor injuries. 

According to CMPD, the Corolla was traveling southeast on Gibbon Road when it crossed the center double yellow line and struck the Tundra head-on. After impact, the Corolla ran off the roadway and overturned onto its side. Both drivers were wearing seat-belts and speed is not a factor, police said. 

The driver of the Tundra was not driving while impaired and test results are pending for the victim of the Corolla, police said. This crash remains under investigation.
