The mother was driving on an Edgecombe County highway when the car crossed the center line. The car hit the tractor head-on, North Carolina State Highway Patrol Trooper Caleb Johnson said in a telephone interview.

Both the driver of the car and its passenger died at the scene on Friday, October 28, WITN reported.
