A 44-year-old Raleigh man died Tuesday night when his car crossed the center line of New Hope Road and slammed head-on at an estimated 50 mph into a car coming the other way at the same speed, police reported.
Carlos Enrique Berrios of 4900 Water Oak Drive was driving a 1997 Toyota north between Marsh Creek and Daly roads, a report says.
Martha Maria Leak, 34, of Raleigh was driving a 2009 Nissan the other way when the Toyota crossed the line shortly after 8 p.m., the report said.
Leak was seriously hurt, the report said. She was reported to be in serious condition Wednesday at WakeMed Hospital in Raleigh.
