A winter weather advisory has been issued for all of eastern Carolina except Carteret, Onslow, and Duplin counties from 6pm Thursday through 4am Friday. Light freezing rain and sleet will be possible.
A 38-year-old Georgia man was arrested and charged with two misdemeanor counts of death by motor vehicle.
Authorities say he was driving an 18-wheeler that was trying to merge on southbound Interstate 95 between WIlson and Rocky Mount Friday when his big rig forced a Corvette to hit a bridge pillar. The two adults inside that car died. At last report, the truck driver was being held in the Nash County jail without bond.
