BURLINGTON, N.C. — A man, who died in a crash on Interstate 85 in Burlington, has been identified, according to Highway Patrol.

At about 10:10 p.m. Sunday, troopers responded to a crash on I-85/I-40, near N.C. 62 in Alamance County.

Nathan David Watson, 22, of Concord, was driving east in a Toyota passenger car as 31-year-old Lee Harrison White, of Evans, Georgia, was driving the same direction in a Jeep SUV.
