FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. (AP) — Two people are dead and one is critically injured following two accidents involving the same vehicle in Fayetteville.

Authorities say it happened shortly before 2 a.m. Wednesday northwest of the downtown area.

Investigators say an SUV crossed the center line and struck a car. Then the SUV hit a second car and ended up on top of that vehicle.

The driver of the SUV died in the crash while an occupant of the second car died at University of North Carolina Hospitals in Chapel Hill. A second person in that car is in critical condition at UNC Hospitals.

Those in the first car also were hurt but their injuries were not life-threatening.

Authorities have not yet released the names of the victims.
