A man was killed in a car wreck late yesterday afternoon near the Buncombe-Haywood County line.
The highway patrol says 43-year-old Ervin Grasty was going west on 19/23 when he crossed the center line and hit a pick-up truck.
He died nearly four hours later at the hospital.
A passenger in his car and a passenger in the truck suffered non life-threatening injuries.
The driver of the pickup, Eric Parcell, was taken to the hospital with serious injuries.
Troopers say speed and alcohol were not factors in the wreck and everyone was wearing seat belts.
