WENDELL, N.C. -

Two people from Washington were killed in a wreck on Highway 264 in Wake County Monday afternoon.

Highway Patrol Troopers say it happened around 4:20 p.m. on 264 at Wendell Boulevard. That's just outside Raleigh.

Troopers say a Honda was driving west on U.S. 264 rear-ended a Chevrolet Aveo, lost control and began to skid sideways. As it crossed into the far left lane, a flatbed tractor-trailer struck the Honda.

The driver of the Honda, 21-year-old Roxanne Swanner and passenger, 29-year-old Santez Keys, both of Washington, were pronounced dead at the scene.

It's not clear if rain played a role in the wreck.

Neither the driver of the Aveo or the truck were injured.
