The North Carolina Highway Patrol says that an 87-year-old woman suffered fatal personal injuries after turning into the path of a pickup truck at the intersection of Natal Street and Veda Street in Fayetteville on October 5.
According to Trooper J.C. Patawaran, the accident took place around 10:15 a.m.
Patawaran said Fayetteville resident Thelma Norton Beal was driving a 1993 Buick and mad a left turn onto Natal Street into the path of a pickup truck driven by 53-year-old Fayetteville resident Jorge Rodriguez Pabon, who was northbound on Natal Street at the time.
Pabon swerved in an attempt to miss the Buick, but the truck struck the Buick around the left front time, according to Patawaran.
Beal received transport to Cape Fear Valley Medical Center, where she was later pronounced dead.
