We’ve learned the names of three people killed in a car crash in McDowell County in March.
It happened on US 221 north of Marion around 4:15 p.m. on March 23rd when a pickup truck heading south collided head-on with a van heading north.
The North Carolina Highway Patrol says the driver of the pickup truck, 61-year-old Terry Dixon and his girlfriend in the passenger seat, 44-year-old Lori Tindel were killed. The driver of the van, 48-year-old Robert Gragg, was also killed.
Troopers say Tindel was from Greenville, South Carolina.
Gragg was from Newland, NC and Dixon was from Wilkes County, NC.
They say it took so long to get the victim’s identities because they were burned so badly.
