A young woman died early Sunday when a dirt bike struck a car on Club Boulevard in Durham, police reported.
Zaena Graham, 22, of Durham was riding on a dirt bike driven by William Lorenzo Jr., 26, of Durham when it struck a 2005 Acura around 4:30 a.m., said Durham police spokesman Wil Glenn. They were not wearing helmets, he said.
The impact threw Graham and Lorenzo off of the bike, police reported. Both were taken to a local hospital, "where Ms. Graham was pronounced dead a short time later," Glenn said.
Lorenzo was in critical condition Sunday evening.
