A Pink Hill couple is dead after state troopers say their vehicle struck standing water on the road, lost control and flipped over.

The crash happened around 5:40 p.m. Sunday on Highway 41 south of Beulaville.

Trooper C.L. Tript says Mack Lanier and his wife, Wanda, were killed in the accident. The trooper estimates their vehicle was going around 60 miles per hour and was exceeding safe speed due to the rain storm moving through the area.

    I think you people arguing on here are idiots, two people lost their lives and you want to argue about road conditions? DOT needs to improve many roads in duplin county and thats all there is too it. In light of this lets have some consideration for those who lost their lives and stop showing the ignorant backwoods mentality that is currently being displayed here. May GOD comfort the family in this time of need.

    I used to drive through there on a regular basis. The DOT needs to do something about ALL THE STANDING WATER IN THAT AREA WHEN IT RAINS!

      NO. I think not. The state has given them, "PAVED" Roads. There is a charge; TOO FAST FOR CONDITIONS! Hot temps over 100o for the last few days baking the asphalt. Oils rise. Water and oil do not mix. Guess what is on top? Oil! Keep it in mind yourself. The next time you wanna b#@_h about DOT doing something about standing water, try searching someone more elderly to discribe when the areas were dirt roads.

        Mike, DOT does need to do something about standing waters on the roads which is caused by the shoulder being higher than the road its self. The dirt on the shoulder can only soak up so much then it becomes a dam, this occurs all over the state because no one tapers the roads properly towards the ditches.

        Since you say 'them' I assume that you're not part of the community and you wouldn't know the conditions of said roads. Thankfully you're here to explain how oil oozes out of asphalt and becomes a road hazard! Where would we be without trolls like you to school everyone?! I know, its too much to ask the state to use the funds we are forced to pay them to maintain these roads. Maybe the DOT will give you a medal for defending them. But really dude, you're trolling the news speaking about a death that you know nothing about nor who it has affected. These people were loved by many and you're just adding to the grief with your comments, go join a forum, I'm sure your incredibly awesome opinions about road construction will be more appreciated there.

        Since you say them, I assume that you're not from this community. Thank you though, for your lesson about oil oozing out of asphalt, maybe the DOT will give you a medal for defending them. I mean, who are we, the taxpayers, to ask the state to use the funds we're forced to give them to fix our roads? But really, you're trolling the news speaking about people and a death that you know nothing about. These people were loved by many and it is a shame. Luckily, you're here to give us your incredibly awesome opinions about roadways! Go join a forum and stop being a TROLL!
