Slick roads are believed to have been a factor in a crash that claimed two lives near the Moore County community of Seven Lakes on Wednesday night.

A pickup truck slid off a bridge and ran through a guardrail on Dowd Road near Mt. Carmel/Beulah Hill Church Road, and came to rest upside down in a creek shortly before 10 p.m., according to the Aberdeen Times.
