JOHNSTON COUNTY, NC (WWAY) — Highway Patrol is searching for a Wilmington driver involved in a crash on I-40 yesterday that severed his passenger’s arm.

The accident happened just before 6 p.m. Tuesday in Johnston County.

Tpr. Michael Baker says Brad Venticinque, 31, was driving west on I-40 when he hit the median, overcorrected and hit a guard wire severing the arm of his passenger Zachary Hunter, 19, also of Wilmington.

“We’re still currently investigating as far as how it possibly could have happened,” Baker said.

Highway Patrol says lack of attention and overcorrecting steering led to the accident.

Venticinque suffered minor injuries and reportedly left the crash scene.

“He did speak with the investigating trooper on the scene. I think he advised that he was going to give him some more information, and then left the scene at that time,” Baker said.

But friends of hunter tell a different story on Facebook. In a post, one friend said, “As for the driver (brad), Zack says he was with him the whole time and even went to the first hospital with him.”

Highway Patrol is working with the Johnston County DA’s Office to decide what charges Venticinque faces, but they have not found him yet.

Hunter is at Duke Medical Center in stable condition.

His girlfriend Ali Johnson posted a picture on Facebook of her holding Hunter’s left hand and a note saying, “Please keep my wonderful boyfriend Zack Hunter in your thoughts and prayers he has got into a car accident and lost his arm.”

She told us Hunter needs all the love and support he can get right now, but she says he is recovering.

    BRAD T VENTICINQUE — the driver has a 11-page criminal record and is a felon — google “NC Offender” and do a public records search to see complete details. Simply put, VENTICINQUE is a thief, a cheat, a druggie who likes to drive recklessly and assault others. Let’s put this guy away for many years. He just got out of prison in 2012 — let’s send him down. He is evil — question, why was 18-year old in the car?

  • Jessamin says:

    I think what should happen is all up to Zack and his thoughts and feelings on the situation. It was a car accident. Nothing to do with Brad’s previous misfortunes. He was in the car with him because, well, he wanted to be.
    Thanks

    We live in West Virginia and we was passing through there after this happened and we saw Zach on the stretcher with his arm severed. We didn’t know if he was dead or alive. Never saw anything like that in our lives. But we want Zach to know we were praying for you. Didn’t know you from adam but we were praying that you live and we thank God you did! Zach thank God you lived and you had people praying for you. Whatever your choice in life, choose Jesus and you’ll see you will be a testimony!! We care in West Virginia!

  • Brittany says:

    That is so sweet and thank you for you caring and prayers I’m just amazed by your kindness

  • Brittany says:

    Zack is doing good, he is in some pain and has another surgery and recovery to go through. He needs positive people to keep him uplifted durning this time. He is not like the man who fled, he is someone who doesn’t judge and hold peoples past on them. He had this happen and will change his life forever. How would you feel if this was you son, brother, grandson or close friend? This is hard on a lot of people without strangers or haters (for whatever jealous reason) saying neg. things. WE LOVE YOU ZACK
