LEXINGTON, N.C. (AP) — Two people were killed after a car traveling in the wrong direction hit their car head-on, the N.C. State Highway Patrol said.

A vehicle was driving north on old U.S. Highway 52 on Monday when it crossed the center line and drove north in the southbound lane, The Dispatch of Lexington reported. A vehicle driving south tried to avoid the car but collided head-on with the vehicle that was traveling in the wrong direction, according to the patrol.

The victims were identified by the patrol as Jerry Lynn Thomas, 76, and Brenda Wallace Thomas, 75. Both are from Winston-Salem.

The patrol said the wrong-way driver was taken to the hospital for treatment of injuries, and added that charges are pending.
