HUDSON, N.C. (AP) – Two people have been killed and two others
were hurt in a single-car wreck in Caldwell County.

North Carolina Highway Patrol Sgt. R.D. Smith says the wreck
happened early Sunday outside Hudson, southeast of Lenoir.

Smith says 19-year-old Carmelo Vazquez of Hudson and 23-year-old
Bartolome Games Romero of Granite Falls. Smith says both of the
victims were in the backseat.

The driver and another passenger were hospitalized.

Authorities say the driver ran off the right side of the road
and begin spinning out of control. The vehicle then crossed the
center line and went off the left side of the road and hit several
trees.
