Police cite heavy rain in the North Carolina mountains as a possible factor in a pair of fatal crashes in which three people suffered fatal personal injuries.


According to a report in the Asheville Citizen-Times, five others were injured in the September 11 crashes, but their injuries are not believed to be life-threatening.


The Asheville police department identified the victims as 18-year-old Buncombe County resident Daniel Lee Burchette, 18-year-old Candler resident Brittany Nicole Hampton, and 22-year-old Asheville resident Kevin Richard Smith.


Police say Burchette died after losing control of his Chevrolet Blazer, which collided with a guardrail and ejected him. His passenger was injured in the accident.


Candler and Smith died when the Mitsubishi Eclipse they were traveling in collided with a Land Rover, police said. Three others in the Mitsubishi and the Land Rover’s driver were injured.
