DURHAM — Authorities say a man speeding from police in Durham crashed head-on into another vehicle, killing both drivers.

Durham Police said they were asked to help the Drug Enforcement Administration with a traffic stop around 6 p.m. Friday on state Highway 98. The driver pulled over, but then sped away.

Investigators say the Chevrolet Impala soon crashed head-on into another vehicle. The man in the Impala died at the scene, while the woman in the other car died at the hospital.

The names of the dead have not been released, and the DEA is not discussing its investigation.
