WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — A third person has died from injuries sustained in a wreck that happened last Wednesday afternoon in Winston-Salem.

At 1:59 p.m. on Wednesday, Winston-Salem police officers responded to the 3000 block of Old Salisbury road in reference to a wreck involving multiple vehicles.

Officers determined that a 1996 Chevrolet Cavalier and a 1993 Chevrolet van collided head on. Winston-Salem police said Wednesday night that the Cavalier veered left of center and collided with the van.

Winston-Salem police said the driver of the Cavalier, identified as 35-year-old Matthew Bronson, of Lexington, and the passenger, identified as 31-year-old Jessica Jones, of Winston-Salem, died at the scene.

The driver of the van, 63-year-old Pamela Dana, of Winston-Salem, and the passenger, 49-year-old William Dana, of Winston-Salem, both sustained injuries in the crash and were transported to Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center for treatment.

Pamela Dana, died Saturday as a result of complications from injuries sustained in the wreck. William Dana, who also sustained injuries in the crash, is improving and remains hospitalized at Wake Forest Baptist Health.

Preliminary evidence suggests that standing water in the roadway caused the driver of the Cavalier to lose control and travel left of center.
