A Johnston County man on the way to see his mother was badly hurt in a single vehicle accident Monday night on Holt’s Pond Road near Princeton .

Kelly sustained a severe head injury and was airlifted to UNC Hospitals in Chapel Hill . A hospital spokesperson said Kelly was in critical condition Tuesday afternoon. State Trooper J.M. Dorsey said a medical condition may have played a contributing factor. Witnesses said Kelly’s truck ran off the roadway to the right in a curve as if he never tried to turn his vehicle. Alcohol and speed were not factors, and Kelly was wearing his seat belt at the time of the crash.
