Raleigh, NC – Two Killed in Head-On Crash on Jones Sausage Road

Raleigh, NC (June 25, 2021) – Officials in Raleigh responded to the scene of a deadly-two vehicle crash in Raleigh on Thursday night. The accident took place at approximately 7:30 p.m. on Jones Sausage Road near the Amazon Distribution Center.

According to a report from the North Carolina State Highway Patrol, 53-year-old Calvin Steward was driving a Chevrolet Suburban in the eastbound lanes of the roadway. At the same time, 28-year-old Lauren Stewart, of Apex, was driving a Ford C-Max westbound. The Ford crossed over the yellow line and collided head-on with the Chevrolet. Laurent Stewart died at the accident scene while Calvin Stewart was taken to a local hospital where he was later pronounced dead. At this time, there is no word on what caused Lauren Stewart’s car to travel left of center. The two victims are not related despite sharing the same last name. A teenager and an infant in Calvin Stewart’s car were taken to a hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries.

At this time, it appears as though speed and alcohol played a role in the collision. Troopers are still investigating.

We would like to offer our thoughts and condolences to the families affected by this tragic fatal car accident in Raleigh.
