Funeral held for Pender County brother and sister who died in crash

BURGAW, NC (WECT) - The funeral for Brittany Holyfield, 16, and Calvin Ennis Jr., 7, was held Saturday at Pender High School.

The brother and sister died last week when a car driven by their mother, Martha Holyfield, hydroplaned, flipped and landed in four to five feet of water on I-140. Martha survived the crash and is recovering. Investigators said alcohol and drugs did not play a factor in the crash.

Hundreds turned out to show the support for the Holyfield family and mourn the loss of the two.
