HAW RIVER, N.C. – A 24-year-old man and a 22-year-old North Carolina A&T University student died in a two-car crash on I-40 Tuesday morning in Alamance County.

According to the North Carolina Highway Patrol, Joshua Lamm of Snow Camp pulled to the right shoulder, made a U-turn and started going east on the westbound travel lanes.


Lamm struck a car head-on that was driven by Destiny Jones from Gastonia. NC A&T has confirmed Jones was a rising senior and a Sports Science and Fitness Major.

Lamm was wearing a seatbelt while Jones was not. The crash happened near the 150-mile marker around 1:30 a.m.

Highway Patrol says alcohol and speed weren’t factors.
