A 29-year-old man died Tuesday morning when the car he was driving crashed head-on into a pickup truck in northern Wake County, according to the State Highway Patrol.
Bernardo Garcia Murillo of Wake Forest died at the scene, said Lt. Jeff Gordon, a Highway Patrol spokesman.
State troopers say Murillo was driving a black Acura west on Rock Spring Church Road, near Rogers Quarters Road, at about 8 a.m. when he attempted to pass in a no-passing zone and met the Ford pickup in the eastbound lane. Investigators said both drivers attempted to avoid the crash but collided head-on, Gordon said.
The driver of the pickup, Steven Edward Piotrowski, 44, of Creedmor, had only minor injuries, Gordon reported. No charges will be filed in the case.
