Three men were killed in a weekend wreck in Johnston County.
North Carolina troopers say 46-year-old Douglas Ray Baldwin was driving just before 10 p.m. on Saturday when he ran off the road and struck a tree. Authorities say the crash was so forceful that the car split in two.
Authorities say he and two passengers - 38-year-old Tony Ray Collins and 57-year-old Willie James McNair - were killed.
Troopers say only McNair was wearing a seatbelt. The Highway Patrol is still investigating the crash.
