Hower said that Schambach ran off the right side of the road around a sharp curve, then overcorrected and drove into the opposite lane where his vehicle’s right side was struck by a 2001 Toyota driven by Dean Henry Frank of Mocksville.
Schambach’s vehicle then skidded and hit a tree.
Lewis and Brand were killed.
Schambach and Frank were taken to Davie County Hospital where they were treated and released.
