Authorities say charges will likely be filed against a driver in an accident in Mitchell County that claimed the lives of two people.

Troopers say a van driven by Owain Hughes failed to yield at a stop sign yesterday at Highway-261 and Fork Mountain Road, and collided with a pickup truck.

Two passengers in the van, Christopher Divers and Ryno Ferreira, were killed.

Six other people were hurt, but are expected to recover.

Troopers say the van was carrying seven people who worked for a contracting company.Mitchell County Fatal Crash
