WILSON, N.C. – A 22-year-old New York woman, her mom and grandmother were all killed Saturday in a devastating car wreck in eastern North Carolina as the family was driving home from Disney World, state police said.
Trooper G.G. Barnes of the North Carolina Highway Patrol said the family's SUV blew a tire on northbound I-95 at 4:20pm, near Wilson -- 50 miles (80km) east of Raleigh.
Barnes identified those killed as Rosanny Marte, 22; Angela Marte, 46; and Rosa Marte, 71.
Five other family members in the SUV -- including the husbands of Angela and Rosa Marte, and Angela's two other children and nephew -- remained hospitalized early Sunday with non-life-threatening injuries, he told the Post.
"The driver lost control of the vehicle and it overturned," he said, adding that the two older women were not wearing seatbelts and were thrown from the vehicle.
