Two Raleigh residents were killed Thursday afternoon following a single-vehicle wreck in Franklinton.
According to a report by State Highway Patrolman B.E. Pulliam, Alexandra Davis, 35, was driving a 2006 Kia van south on U.S. 1 near Cheatham Street at about 1:40 p.m. when she ran off the road to the right.
The van overturned and hit a utility pole, ejecting both Davis and a passenger, 44-year-old Davis Bradley.

FRANKLINTON -- After a seemingly never-ending series of momentum swings and big plays on both sides of the ball, Franklinton’s home contest Friday against Corinth Holders was destined to come down to one play.
After scoring with just over one minute left to draw to within one point, the Red Rams opted to go for a potential game-winning two-point conversion.
But the attempt was not successful, and the Pirates handed Franklinton its first loss of the season at 33-32.
WARRENTON -- In the estimation of Coach Chris Lee, the Louisburg Warriors simply couldn’t finish the deal during Friday’s non-conference road football event at Warren County.
Leading by 16 points in the fourth quarter, Louisburg saw the Eagles rally for a trio of touchdowns to pull off a 42-36 decision.
