Jerry Alamo, 29, and Aretha Lynette Chavis, 49, killed; four adults and four children injured in wrong-way crash on Interstate 85 in Durham, North Carolina
The woman driving the wrong way on the road also died. Her name has not been released.
Michael says 36-year-old Glenda Alamo of Central Falls, Rhode Island, was critically injured. Jerry Alamo was driving an SUV and four children, ages 4, 10, 11 and 16, along with three other adults were taken to a hospital for treatment of injuries that appeared to be less serious.
ABC11 retraced Chavis' route. We noticed when a driver turns at the intersection, they approach an arrow. But if they're not careful, they will turn into oncoming traffic.
The arrow is actually telling the drive to go straight down a side street. A mistaken turn has shattered two families.
