WAYNE COUNTY, N.C. (WITN) - The Highway Patrol now says four people have died in a wrong-way crash late Sunday night on a busy Eastern Carolina highway.

The crash happened around 10:45 p.m. on the U.S. 70 Bypass west of La Grange and just inside Wayne County.

Troopers say Roy Mozingo, of Kinston, was headed east in the westbound lanes of the highway when his small SUV collided head-on with a westbound vehicle.

The 68-year-old Mozingo was killed in the crash, as well as the other driver and two passengers in that vehicle.

They have been identified as driver Treyvon Allen, 21, of Stanwood, Washington, and rear passengers Aaron Judd, 17, and Reianna Jones, 15, both from Holly Springs.

Another passenger in the vehicle that was hit survived the crash. Troopers say 27-year-old Antonio Winston, of Holly Springs, is in stable condition.

Winston and Judd were brothers.

Troopers said they do not believe alcohol is a factor in the deadly crash.
