Trooper Fowler says Talacois was pronounced dead at the scene and the driver of the Mazda, Kerineck, 20, sustained serious injuries.The two passengers in the vehicle Hugo Sosa, 32, and a 17-year-old both have critical injuries. The 17-year-old's name was not released, and they were transported to Vidant Medical Center with critical injuries.
