Two Sanford men die following wreck
Two Sanford men were killed and one injured following a one-vehicle wreck early Saturday morning on Tramway Road.
Jose Ignacio Atrisco-Solis, 23, was pronounced dead at the scene by responders to the wreck in the 1500 block of Tramway Road, near Jim’s Restaurant, according to N.C. Highway Patrol Trooper Greg Ingram. Francisco Javier Mendoza, 23, died after being airlifted to UNC Hospitals. A third person, 23-year-old Francisco Javier Olea Soto, was also airlifted to UNC Hospitals.
Ingram said the vehicle was traveling at a high speed, although the exact speed is still unknown as the wreck remains under investigation.
The vehicle veered left, crossing over the center line and then going off the road and hitting a post, a golf cart and a tree, Ingram said. The impact with the tree reportedly split the car in half, ejecting all three people from the vehicle. No other people or vehicles were involved in the accident.
