HOLDEN BEACH, NC (WWAY) — Investigators say a wet road contributed to a traffic crash that killed a Brunswick County man this morning. Now the woman in the other car involved faces charges.
Highway Patrol says Mark Teague, 25, of Supply died in the crash. Troopers says Teague and his wife were traveling on Holden Beach Road (NC 130) near Holden Beach before 10 a.m. They say a car driven by Rhonda Varnam, 52, of Supply hydroplaned, crossed the center line and hit the Teagues’ car.
Highway Patrol says Varnam will be charged with misdemeanor death by motor vehicle. Investigators say Varnam and Teague’s wife were taken to New Hanover Regional Medical Center. There’s no word yet on their conditions.
A witness working at a business near where the crash happened says she believes the two cars hit head-on. She says the Teagues’ car flipped into a ditch on the side of the road.
