LUMBERTON — A 23-year-old Maxton woman and her 2-year-old son were killed in a wreck near Pembroke early Thursday morning, according to the state Highway Patrol.
Tiffany Hunt and Brayden Hunt, of Justice Drive, were killed when Hunt’s 2000 Ford Ranger trunk entered a curve too quickly and she lost control of the vehicle, according to a report filed by Trooper D.E. Raynor.
Tiffany Hunt was not wearing a seat belt and Brayden Hunt was not secured in a child restraint, the report said.
