FIRST ON WITN: Two Killed In Highway 33 Accident

Two people were killed in an accident Thursday morning in Beaufort County.

It happened around 9:50 a.m. on Highway 33, west of Aurora.

State troopers say a car pulled out from Bonnerton Road and failed to yield. A dump truck struck the car, killing both people inside.

Dead is 77-year-old Daniel Williams, who was driving the car, and passenger 61-year-old Geannie Moore. Both were from the Edwards/Blounts Creek area. The dump truck driver was not injured.

Troopers tell WITN News that it's possible the sun may have impaired the car driver's vision. They plan to come back out Friday and recreate the accident scene.

The highway was shut down for several hours as emergency crews cleared the accident scene.

This is the 13th fatal accident in Beaufort County this year, 6 of those happened on Highway 33.
