On October 4, the North Carolina Highway Patrol identified the driver who was driving the wrong way on Interstate 85, resulting in a crash in which he suffered fatal personal injuries, as 21-year-old Durham resident Obet Diaz Silva.

 

Around 5:45 a.m. on October 2, Silva was northbound in the southbound lanes of I-85 just south of the Falls Lake bridge near the county line for Durham County and Granville County when his car collided with a pickup truck, according to authorities.

 

The driver of the pickup was uninjured.

 

Troopers say they have yet to determine what caused Silva to drive in the wrong direction.
