Raleigh, N.C. — When Marshall Doran tried to avoid a truck spun out in the snow on Interstate 40 near Garner, he hit and killed two men on the shoulder, according to a wreck report describing a deadly hit-and-run involving the 21-year-old.
Doran, of Kure Beach, was traveling 60 mph on the snow and ice covered road when he hit and killed Nathaniel Williams, 34, of Hope Mills and Larry Kepley, 39, of Winston-Salem, with his Volvo station wagon, the report said.
Doran never stopped, according to a separate arrest warrant.
The hit-and-run happened Thursday night after the driver of a tractor-trailer cab lost control and stopped perpendicular to the road. Kepley stopped his tractor-trailer to help.
Two other cars then lost control and went down an embankment. One of those drivers, Williams, who was in the U.S. Navy, was also trying to help.
After hitting the two men, Doran kept traveling east, taking out a traffic sign. He was later found in a wooded area on the interstate near Lake Wheeler Road.
Doran faces several charges, including felony death by motor vehicle, hit-and-run and impaired driving. He is on pre-trial release and is ordered to stay away from controlled substances and alcohol. He will also be monitored and cannot leave the state.
