PENDER COUNTY, NC (WWAY) -- Last night, a Sheriff's Office van was involved in a deadly wreck in Pender County. The van was carrying four inmates from Pamlico to Burgaw when a pickup hit the van.
The driver of the pickup, Lonnie McGhee, died at the scene. The crash is still under investigation, but we do know the pickup had a stop sign at the intersection while the van did not.
The inmates and driver of the van were taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
