Lillington, N.C. — One person died Thursday morning in a two-vehicle Harnett County wreck, authorities said.
The crash happened around 7:30 a.m. near 1653 Sheriff Johnson Road, Lillington. Troopers with the North Carolina State Highway Patrol said a driver of a black vehicle ran a stop sign and crashed into a silver vehicle at the intersection.
The driver of the black car died in the wreck—troopers did not release the person's identity. Passengers in the black vehicle were taken to the hospital.
Authorities did not know the condition of the driver of the silver vehicle.
Troopers said sun beaming into the black vehicle's windshield could have been the cause of the wreck.
