Authorities say a 22-year-old Raleigh man was driving 76 mph with his 7-year-old nephew in the car when they crashed at an intersection, killing them both.
Investigators said the wrecked happened Friday night at an intersection in north Raleigh where the speed limit is 35 mph.
A family friend told police that Tyeqauze O'Neal had just picked up the boy from basketball practice when he wrecked. Investigators say he lost control of his 1994 Toyota Camry and it spun and crossed the center line, hitting a 2003 Chrysler PT Cruiser head on. O'Neal was wearing a seatbelt, the boy was not.
The two people in the Chrysler were taken to the hospital and are expected to recover.
