Investigators say a witness saw the soldier's car weaving just before the crash.

Troopers strongly suspect alcohol was involved.

There were passengers in both cars. They survived the crash.

It happened at about 2:30 a.m. on Highway 210. State troopers say the two cars slammed head-on into each other.

In one car, there were two young women, one of them a Campbell University student. They reportedly were heading back to Campbell.

The driver, a 22-year-old woman from Ohio, was killed. The passenger, a 23-year-old female, is in serious condition.

Two men were in the other car. The driver was killed. He was a Fort Bragg soldier.

The passenger is in critical condition.

Troopers are still conducting interviews trying to figure out what happened.

As they return to campus from spring break, Campbell University students are learning of the tragedy.
