Head-on crash kills two

A devastating crash on Thursday killed two men on Highway 86.

Two people are dead following a head-on crash in Caswell County on Highway 86 on Thursday at 11:35 a.m.

Highway Patrol says the wreck near Old NC 86 killed the Reidsville man and his passenger when he drove a 2015 Nissan into a 2014 Freightliner tractor trailer for Brenntag Mid-South based in Henderson, KY.

Police believe the 20-year-old driver, Bryson Southern of Reidsville, lost control of his vehicle and crossed the center line thereby crashing head-on into the tractor trailer.

Southern and his passenger both died and the driver of the truck was not injured.

According to Highway Patrol, speed was the primary contributing factor.
