A woman is in critical condition after running a stop sign and hitting another car, killing the driver in Ruffin, North Carolina (N.C.). The North Carolina Highway Patrol says the car accident occurred at the intersection of Oregon Hill Road and Guerrant Springs Road in this small NC town around 8:15 am Tuesday morning.
According to investigators 34-year-old Evie Holt ran a stop sign and hit a county school maintenance truck. The truck rolled into a ditch and ejected the driver, 41-year-old Timothy Wilson. Wilson died from his injuries. He was not wearing his seatbelt, according to the patrolman.
The driver of the car, Holt, is being cared for at Moses Cone hospital where she is listed as being in critical condition.
Investigators have determined that speed is not thought to be a factor. Holt was apparently taking a different route because the road she normally takes to go to work was washed out due to excessive rain.
