N.C. Highway Patrol troopers say that speeding was the cause of a two-car collision Friday in Middlesex that caused the deaths of three people and injured another.

The collision occurred about 10:30 p.m. Friday night at the intersection of N.C. 231 and Hales Avenue in Middlesex. Trooper Cureton of the N.C. Highway Patrol said that reports of the incident reveal that one vehicle turned into the path of another vehicle that was traveling at a high rate of speed and the two unidentified vehicles collided.

Jasmine Hudson, 22, and Tremeless Stancil, 23, were in the vehicle that was struck as it turned. Both Hudson and Stancil died at the scene. Aaron Scott Keen, 24, was in the other vehicle and also died at the scene. Another unidentified person in the car with Keen was injured in the crash and transported to a medical facility. Earlier reports that Keen was the driver of the second vehicle appear to be untrue.

Cureton said that incident is still under investigation but the cause of the collision is listed as a high rate of speed.
