Two men killed in separate crashes feet away from each other

FALLSTON, NC(WBTV) -

Two people died in two separate wrecks late Monday night on Highway 18 in Fallston, which is just north of Shelby.

North Carolina troopers tell WBTV a woman was driving with a passenger and a motorcycle struck the side of her car. The motorcycle hit a pole and the man driving it died.

Seconds later,  another motorcycle struck the woman's car from behind. The male driver of that motorcycle also died.

Troopers tell us speed was a factor in the crashes and the two motorcyclists knew each other.

The names of the motorcycle drivers have not been released.

The woman and the passenger in car were not hurt.
