MARION, N.C. -- Two North Carolina men have been killed when their sports car slid into the path of another vehicle, injuring a Florida couple.
Multiple media outlets reported Monday that 23-year old Jeremy Bolick of Lenoir and 20-year-old passenger Charles Thomas Wright of Blowing Rock died Sunday near Marion. Blowing Rock Fire & Rescue said the men were volunteer firefighters attending a training course in McDowell County.
Highway Patrol Trooper Thomas Brewer says the two died at the scene on U.S. 221 when their speeding Ford Mustang slipped on wet pavement.
Brewer says Cynthia and Jeffrey Bassett of Flagler Beach, Fla., were in a car that struck the Mustang at the front passenger door. Brewer said both 51-year-olds suffered multiple fractures.
