GASTON COUNTY -- A UNCW freshman traveling home for the Easter weekend was killed in a wreck Wednesday in Gaston County, west of Charlotte.

State Troopers say Ashley Griffin's car was hit head on by a driver who crossed the center line. The 18-year-old student died at the hospital. The driver of the other car, 61-year-old Ronnie Jones, died at the scene.

Troopers say people who saw Jones earlier in the day told authorities he had been drinking.
