HOLLISTER, N.C. (WNCT) — The bodies of two men who had been reported missing on May 25 were found at a crash site near the Nash-Halifax county line on Thursday.
Nash County deputies said the bodies of Brandon Lynch and Howard Hill were found in the Chevrolet Cobalt which they were operating when they were last seen. The car was found 30 yards off the roadway on Ward Road near the Halfiax-Nash county line. Deputies said the vehicle was covered by heavy brush and it was difficult to see from the roadway.
Based on preliminary information from the NC State Highway Patrol and evidence at the scene, officials said it appeared the victims ran off the roadway in a curve, lost control and their vehicle overturned in the heavily brushy area, making it difficult for vehicles passing by to see.
