BEAUFORT — Speed was a contributing factor in a one-car wreck that killed two people Sunday in Carteret County, the Highway Patrol said.
Rachel F. Lewis, 30, and Davin M. Fulford, 34, both of Beaufort, died as a result of the wreck that occurred about 7 a.m. on Merrimon Road north of Beaufort, said Trooper Marvin Shadday.
Lewis was driving a 1993 Toyota Corolla north on Merrimon Road at a high rate of speed when the car crossed the centerline, went off the road to the left, struck a tree and overturned in the ditch. The car was traveling an estimated 80 mph in a 55 mph zone, Shadday said.
Neither the driver nor passenger was wearing a seat belt. Fulford was partially ejected and trapped under the car, highway patrol said.
Lewis died at the scene and Fulford was airlifted to Pitt Memorial Hospital, where he died later that day, Shadday said.
A graveside service for Fulford will be held at 11 a.m. Thursday at Red Hill Cemetery.
He is survived by his wife, Misty Fulford of Newport; mother, Rhonda Willis of Beaufort; father, Julian Morris of Atlantic; and sisters, Courtney Ross of Greenville, Charlotte Wade, Lesle Tickle and Stephanie Deaner, all of Beaufort.
Funeral information was not available for Lewis.
