A 19-year-old woman suffered fatal personal injuries on January 23 when her car ran off an Orange County interstate and collided with a stand of trees.
According to North Carolina Highway Patrol Trooper Mark Melvin, Efland resident Ashley Ann Terry was traveling north on Interstate 85, near the intersection with I-40 and a state weigh station, when she ran off the road.
Melvin said Terry did not brake before colliding with the trees and the Suzuki car she was driving overturned.
Melvin says speeding and alcohol are not believed to have been factors and Terry was wearing her seat belt. He said she had complained of low blood sugar, but he did not know if that was a factor.
