REIDSVILLE, N.C. — State troopers have identified a man who died Monday morning in a crash on N.C. Highway 150 in Reidsville.
The crash was reported just before 6:30 a.m. near Candy Creek Road.
Trooper Greg Ingram identified the person who was killed as Bryan Baken Jr., 30, of Gibsonville.
Ingram said Baken was traveling west on N.C. 150 in a 2004 Pontiac sedan while Brian Harbour, 26, of Ruffin, was traveling east on the highway in a 2002 Ford Ranger.
