4 killed in head-on crash in Monroe, officials say

MONROE, N.C. — Four people were killed in a two-vehicle, head-on crash over the weekend in Monroe, officials confirmed. There were no survivors of the collision.

On Sunday at about 7:30 p.m., a 2009 Jeep Cherokee, driven by Bruno German Lindo, 33, of Monroe was going about 75 mph on Sutherland Avenue when he passed a car on the double-yellow line.

Lindo returned to his lane but lost control and crossed the center line again, striking a 2006 Chevrolet Silverado head-on.

Lindo, the only one in the Jeep, was ejected and died at the scene.


The driver of the Chevrolet, Derek Jason Hasty, 39, of Peachland, was flown to Atrium Main, where he died. Aaliyah Marie Colvard, 19, of Marshville, and Aasin Kimani Estep, 28, of Monroe, were passengers in the truck and died at the scene.

Nobody in the truck was wearing a seatbelt.

No further information has been released.
