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 seat belt, 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.
