— Two men were killed Saturday afternoon in a two-car crash on Stephenson Road north of Holly Springs, according to the North Carolina Highway Patrol.

Sgt. Jeff Gordon said a vehicle traveling north on Stephenson Road crossed the center line around 1 p.m. and side-swiped a southbound vehicle. After impact, the first vehicle ran on to the right shoulder, overturned and ejected two passengers.

Both passengers – Francisco Gonzales, 26, and Ramiro Arroyo-Rosales, 30, both of 1027 Malkhaw St. in Apex – died. They were not wearing seat belts, Gordon said.

Three other people were injured in the crash.

Gordon said alcohol was a factor. Charges are pending.

    We need someone to start arresting the illegal drivers. And why does this article lack vehicle types? I am guessing that is something else that we should be seeing--why hide it?

    Again this morning yet another alcohol related crash that resulted in death. Enough is enough. We need someone in office to make Driving drunk and much harsher crime. Spend my tax dollars on that !
