Two Drivers And An Infant Killed In Head-On NC Crash

Authorities say a baby and two adults have died in a four-vehicle wreck in North Carolina.

Authorities told multiple media outlets that the driver of a Ford Mustang crossed the center line and hit a sport utility vehicle around 2:30 p.m. Thursday in Hope Mills. Two other vehicles also crashed.

Hope Mills police Sgt. David Servie says 26-year-old Tristan Hanna of Webster, N.Y., and 26-year-old Hien Truong of Parkton died Thursday at hospitals. Hanna was driving the Mustang, and Truong was driving the SUV.

Truong's infant daughter died Thursday night. Two other adults were in critical condition.

Servie says speed played a role in the crash, but authorities are still investigating.

    Did anyone ever stop to think that just maybe something happened to Mr. Hanna while he was driving that caused him to cross the center line (maybe something medically?) People are so quick to judge. None of us have any idea what happened that day as none of us were in his car with him.

    I hear you Chris; thanks. That same thing happens to me too, on HWY. 17, and the license plates always have Virginia, Maryland, New Jersey, or New York on them.

    Outside Looking in - That is probably the best post I have ever seen on WITN. So much truth in that statement of yours! Imagine this folks, if we ALL just slowed down a little bit and enjoyed the scenery instead of trying to zip past traffic like you are qualifying for the daytona 500, we might just cut our fatal accident's down to near nothing! Even if only one child is saved because of it, wouldn't it be worth it?? As outside looking in stated, learn it and live it! Enjoy the view's and the tranquil surroundings instead of making the stretch of highway look like a NRA drag strip! I was on US 64 near williamston tonight driving 75 in a 70, this blue tahoe caught up with me and then passed me like I was sitting still! And for what? To catch Mcdonalds before they closed?

    Tragic, just slow down a little and pay attention. As for u north, Has anybody ever driven in Jersey or Delaware. Our roads as a whole are so much better. They have lines and everything. See if Delaware has that off of 13,113, and I-95. Jersey is just one big pot hole

    To Me: When you come to the South, expect things to be different. You will hear a different accent, and our roads are not funded quite like your Northern counterparts. Slow down, follow the speed limit signs, and quit driving like you are 'up North', cuz you ain't. I notice in the Travel magazines, we are advertised as laid back mountains/scenic roadways/crystal coast...think about it; learn it; live it. Every road in the south is not paved with gold; that is reserved for heaven.

    Sad ending, indeed. *To sad*: More importantly, the speed in itself is not the cause. There are many accidents in which someone driving UNDER the speed limit is a contributing factor. The problem is that people need to LEARN HOW TO DRIVE and PAY ATTENTION! (which echoes Ace's thoughts-- driver error). *To Wondering Citizen*: I don't know how that is related to this story, but I agree wholeheartedly.

    But I am sooo important I have the RIGHT to talk on my cell phone and mess with my radio and speed and tailgate and never use a turn signal!

    Concerned Citizen is right on! Every day I encounter somebody with a phone glued to their ear coming across the center line.....I have no problem with people talking on phones IF they can drive responsibly also....Unfortunately,most people can't seem to do both & completely lose their focus on driving when yapping on their phones.....PUT THE PHONE DOWN IF YOU CAN'T PAY ATTENTION TO YOUR DRIVING!!
