ONSLOW COUNTY, NC (WECT) – A couple from Lake Waccamaw was killed in an Onslow County crash Thursday, WITN reports.

Both the driver of the vehicle, George Theodorakis, and his wife, Betty Theodorakis, died in the accident. Betty had just celebrated her 73rd birthday.

The crash happened around noon on U.S. 17, and the couple's son, in his 40s, was in the backseat at the time. He was airlifted to New Hanover Regional Medical Center and was listed in good condition Friday morning.

Officials say the vehicle lost control while headed northbound, and was wrapped around a tree in the median.

All three passengers in the car were wearing seatbelts.
