Officials say a pregnant woman and a man are dead after their car ran off the road in Carteret County and slammed into a tree about 7:00 a.m. Sunday.
The Highway Patrol says the driver was 30-year-old Rachel Lewis and the passenger was 34-year-old Davin Fulford.
Troopers say Lewis was speeding on Merrimon Road about 10 miles north of Beaufort, when her Toyota Corolla ran off the road, hit a tree, and flipped over.
Troopers say neither was wearing a seat belt. Highway Patrol says Lewis died at the scene and Fulford was taken to Pitt County Memorial Hospital where he died.
Troopers say Lewis' mother told them her daughter was several months pregnant.
They also confirm that several years ago, Fulford was driving a vehicle that crashed in Carteret County. They tell WITN Fulford's baby son was killed in the crash and Fulford was convicted of misdemeanor death by motor vehicle.
