An early-morning truck and car accident in Dunn, North Carolina, left two men dead on I-95 this week. North Carolina police said that 55-year-old Bert William Baytops and 38-year-old Tralina Covington were driving a car they had bought to Jacksonville, North Carolina, when the car drive off of the roadway and hit a guardrail. As the car spun out of control on the highway, a truck driven by Jeffrey Drumm slammed into the car, whose headlights were no longer working. The tractor-trailer rear-ended the car.

NC Highway Patrol said that Covington was ejected from the car while Baytops was killed inside the car, which caught fire after impact. Drumm did not suffer any injuries in the NC truck accident.

NC police are not sure why the car originally ran off of Interstate 95, though the early-morning time of the truck accident may have involved fatigue or sleeping behind the wheel.
