Police: Wrong-way driver caused fatal Fayetteville crash
Posted July 18
Fayetteville, N.C. — One of the three people killed Wednesday evening in a Fayetteville wreck had crossed into oncoming traffic, causing the fatal crash, police said Friday.
The four-car crash happened in the 3500 block of Murchison Road when a 2010 Nissan pickup operated by John Wesley Morrow, 67, of Fayetteville, crossed the center line, police said.
Jimmy Campbell, 50, of Lumberton, and Laytosha McNair, 35, of Raeford, were unable to take evasive action and slammed into Morrow's truck and each other, police said.
All three drivers died at the scene. The driver of a fourth car in the pile-up, Jennifer Chagnon, 40, of Clemmons, wasn't seriously injured.
Police said they are still trying to determine what caused Morrow to cross the center line.
Murchison Road was closed between Pamalee Drive and Shaw Mill Road for more than six hours after the wreck.
