Two drivers were killed in a collision on I-83 early Monday morning after one of the motorists drove in the wrong direction on the highway, police said today.

About 1:45 a.m., the driver of a 2002 Mercedes-Benz traveling north in the southbound lane struck a 2013 Infiniti head-on near the North Avenue exit.

Witnesses pulled the bodies of the Mercedes driver, 26-year-old Equanna Duncan of the 4200 block of Fernhill Avenue, and Infiniti driver, 51-year-old Walter Dunbar of the 2900 block of Independence Street, from their vehicles, police said.

Both were taken to an area hospital, where they were pronounced dead.

Detectives from BPD’s Crash Team are still investigating the collision, police said.
