Four North Carolina men, three of whom were from Rowan County, were killed Tuesday when the vehicle they were traveling in struck a tractor-trailer head-on on a North Dakota highway.
Derek M. Sorrell, 27, of Spencer; William M. Webb, 25, of China Grove; Scotty R. Eagle, 23, of Salisbury; and Julian G. Mazaba, 33, of Biscoe died in the accident.
According to a report from the North Dakota Highway Patrol, the men were traveling eastbound in a 2004 Lincoln Navigator on U.S. 52, four miles west of Drake, N.D., when they collided with a 2012 Mack Truck traveling westbound at about 6:40 p.m.
