Authorities believe driver fatigue played a part in a fatal crash in Durham Thursday afternoon.

The State Highway Patrol says 43-year-old Bradley Watkins, of Durham, was killed when he crossed the center line and hit a silver Acura head-on. The driver of the Acura is expected to recover.

Watkins, was driving a Geo Tracker going eastbound on U.S. Highway 70 just west of Mineral Springs Road when the crash happened around 1:45 p.m.

Authorities say it appears Watkins fell asleep at the wheel, based on some findings in the investigation.

Both drivers were wearing seatbelts.
