LINDEN, N.C. (WTVD) -- Two people are dead and another injured after a serious crash Tuesday evening in Cumberland County.
North Carolina State Highway Patrol told ABC11 that a blue pickup carrying two people, Randy Page and Michelle McMillin, pulled out from a stop sign onto East Reeves Bridge Road in Linden.
At the same time, another pickup traveling down McBryde Street crashed into them.
Page and McMillin both died in the crash. The driver of the other vehicle, Jerry McLean II, was taken to the hospital for treatment.
Highway Patrol said McLean was speeding and driving without a license. He is facing traffic violations for both of those issues and has also been charged with misdemeanor death by motorvehicle.
People living in the area told ABC11 that the intersection where the crash happened is accident-prone. They want measures taken to try to avoid these tragedies.
"I'd like to see, just the DOT or state or somebody come out here and put rumble strips down, stop a hair, or put us an extra couple signs out there," said Linden resident Britten O'Quinn. "You cannot see those stops unless you know what's there. This place has grown up; a lot more people out here in this area now, and they're not familiar with these roads. They run right through this intersection."
