Two people have been killed after a rally to honor Vietnam veterans at the Charlotte Motor Speedway.
Authorities say two motorcycles crashed into each other at the track at around 5 p.m. Saturday.
The crash happened shortly after a gathering that attracted thousands of people attended a day-long Vietnam Veterans Homecoming Celebration. The free event was sponsored by the USO of North Carolina, the N.C. Association of Broadcasters and the Speedway.
Three people were hurt in the collision. All were rushed to hospitals, and police say both drivers died a short time later.
Police have not released any of the people's names, but authorities have said none were from the Charlotte area.
