Two drivers died when their vehicles collided in Wayne County.

Two people are dead after a head-on collision Friday in Wayne County.

It happened just before 5 p.m. on Salem Church Road near Belfast Road, north of Goldsboro.

The wreck involved a GMC pickup truck and a Ford E-350 van. Both drivers died, authorities said.

The driver of the car was identified as Grace Lane Edwards, 51, of Pikeville. The other victim was Jerry Lewis Davis, 58, of Goldsboro.

Neither driver had any passengers in their vehicles, troopers said.

Troopers also said Edwards crossed the center line and hit Davis' van head on.

Speed was not a factor, a trooper said. Alcohol is not believed to be a factor, either. Both drivers were wearing seatbelts.
