— A bizarre accident in Stanly County has a community looking for answers.

The Locust area softball team held a car wash Saturday to raise money for the state tournament.

While it was under way, a Blazer jumped a curb and ran into a crowd of people.

Forty-nine-year-old Norma Allen was hit and killed while waiting for her car to be washed. And 12-year-old Jennifer Mullis died on the way to the hospital.

State troopers don't know yet what caused the teenage driver to lose control.

No charges have been filed.
