A Sunday evening crash in High Point, NC, ended with two fatalities and four injuries after one Nissan Altima struck another.
Authorities say the accident happened Sunday night a little after 8 PM. First responders arrived at the scene and found a 2012 Nissan Altima overturned on its side. They tried to revive the driver and passenger, but sadly Joshua Kole Norris and Nehemiah Pratt, both 18, were pronounced dead at the scene.
Emergency responders also found a 2020 Nissan Altima, whose driver and passengers were taken to a local hospital for treatment.
Police later determined speeding was the primary factor in the crash. They report that the 2020 Altima was going 80-100 mph in a 45 mph zone when the 2012 Altima was making a left turn from Johnson Street onto Oakview Road, and the crash happened.
Speeding always increases the risk of death or injury in a car crash, and the faster a vehicle is going, the higher the risk. Drivers should exercise care in following the speed limit.
