Slick roads are believed to have been a factor in a crash that claimed two lives near the Moore County community of Seven Lakes on Wednesday night.

A pickup truck slid off a bridge and ran through a guardrail on Dowd Road near Mt. Carmel/Beulah Hill Church Road, and came to rest upside down in a creek shortly before 10 p.m., according to the Aberdeen Times.

Chatham County residents Michael Wilson, 57, and Jerry Wilson, 73, were pronounced dead at the scene, according to the report.

The side of Beulah Hill Church Road was closed for several hours while crews worked to remove the truck from the creek, according to the N.C. Department of Transportation.
