The State Highway Patrol was trying Monday to determine what set the stage for a head-on crash on Interstate 540 that killed two people early Sunday.
Troopers said a Mazda was going east in the interstate’s westbound lanes and smashed into a Kia that was going the right way shortly before 3 a.m.
It happened a little ways west of I-540’s interchange with Creedmoor Road, which is N.C. 50, Sgt. Michael Baker, a Highway Patrol spokesman said.
Kevin Marcel Dunkin was driving the Mazda that was going the wrong way, and Naisha Virginia Boneque was driving the Kia, Baker said.
Never miss a local story.
Both drivers died at the scene.
