Posted February 12, 2012
Cary, N.C. — A Cary couple was killed Sunday when their car was struck by oncoming traffic on West Chatham Street, police said.
Police say 22-year-old Martikia Adams was driving in a Saturn with her boyfriend, 26-year-old Brian Cobb, when she attempted to turn left onto Cary Parkway and crossed into the path of a Dodge Avenger.
Adams and Cobb were taken to WakeMed, where they died, police said.
Meghan Sladek, who was driving the Avenger, suffered minor injuries, police said.
The crash happened before 10:30 a.m. No charges have been filed.
No other information was available.
Neighbors living near the intersection say it's dangerous and a common site for car crashes.
"I've almost been hit by people who just come down, don't even think about the stop sign," Howard Kelly said. "In the morning, when they're going to work, they just come right out and make the left without even stopping, so there's always accidents here."
