Man killed in wreck

Vehicle struck tree off Browns Bridge Road

POSTED: November 23, 2012 11:18 p.m.

A 21-year-old Forsyth County man died after his car struck a tree early Thanksgiving morning.

Alex Owen Pagel of Bullock Lane lost control of a 1985 Nissan 300ZX on Browns Bridge Road, just east of Reeves Road, said Karleen Chalker, Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman.

The single-vehicle collision occurred at 3:20 a.m. Thursday, Chalker said.

“He ran off the south side of 369 … rotated clockwise, went up the embankment and struck the tree on the driver’s door,” said Chalker, citing a sheriff’s report.

Pagel was not wearing a seatbelt, she said, and he was pronounced dead on the scene.

The accident remains under investigation.

Pagel was a graduate of North Forsyth High School, according to his obituary.

The death was the first on county roads over the 102-hour Thanksgiving holiday travel period, which runs through midnight Sunday.
