MATTHEWS, NC (AP) -- A Matthews man has been charged with driving while impaired after a wreck that killed a Charlotte grandmother and her daughter.

Authorities say 62-year-old Marie Crook and her daughter, 37-year-old Jennifer Hunt, were both killed in the wreck just before 10 p.m. Wednesday.

Officials say Crook was driving a Honda CRV and was hit by a Chevrolet Trailblazer driven by 28-year-old Justin Jones.

Hunt's two children were being treated for minor injuries. Jones was also taken to the hospital.

Police are still investigating the wreck. It wasn't known if Jones had an attorney.
