Dearia Davis Obituary, Death – On Tuesday morning, there was a collision on the Raleigh Beltline that involved a car and a tow truck. The incident occurred early in the morning. The accident was responsible for the deaths of two people and the injuries sustained by a third individual. India Simone McBride, who was 19, and Dearia Takayla Davis, who was 20, have been identified as the victims. McBride was 19 years old, and Davis was 20 years old. The Raleigh Police Department was kind enough to supply us with this information.
According to a news release, an initial investigation found that McBride was operating a 2010 Honda Civic in the incorrect direction on Interstate 440 around 1:30 a.m., going west in the eastbound lanes between New Bern Avenue and I-87. This information was gleaned from a preliminary investigation. The investigation also uncovered the fact that McBride was traveling in the opposite direction of traffic between New Bern Avenue and Interstate 87 while he was driving westbound. The driver of a Ford flatbed tow truck was headed in the opposite direction of traffic on eastbound Interstate 440 when the head-on collision between the two vehicles occurred. The driver of the tow truck sustained some minor injuries, so he was taken to the hospital to get treatment for them.
After the initial collision, a third vehicle reportedly continued down the road and struck the disabled Honda Civic that was still in the roadway. This information is gleaned from the press release. The driver was completely unharmed in this incident. There has been no formal charge brought against this individual. This matter is still being looked into by investigators as we speak.
