Raleigh, N.C. — Two people died in a near head-on collision Sunday morning on Interstate 440 in Raleigh, police said.
According to investigators, David Viva Xicotencatl, 25, was traveling west in the eastbound lane of I-440 near Six Forks Road shortly before 4 a.m. when the 2001 Chevrolet sedan he was driving hit a 1997 Mazda sedan driven by Elizabeth Camille Bullock, 20.
Bullock was pronounced dead at the scene, and Xicotencatl was taken to WakeMed, where he died.
Further details weren't immediately available, and a wreck report wasn't expected to be complete until later this week, a police spokesman said.
The wreck closed eastbound I-440, as well as parts of Six Forks Road, for several hours before they reopened around 8 a.m.
