Two Killed in Robeson County Accident

APRIL 7, 2006 -- Two people are dead after an accident Thursday evening in Robeson County.

It happened around 6:00pm on Barker Ten Mile Road off Highway 20, that's just east of St. Pauls in Robeson County. According to authorities, the car ran off the road and struck a tree. Both the driver, 20-year-old Kenneth Goepfert, and the passenger, 18-year-old Ashley Lapan, were killed.

Officers say Goepfert appears to have been driving too fast. He ran off the road and overcorrected, which made him lose control.
