Woman killed in Davidson County crash
Weather was a contributing factor in a crash that killed a Davidson County woman Tuesday morning, troopers said.
The single-vehicle crash happened around 7:20 a.m. on Highway 109 south of Cedar Springs Road near Denton. No one else was in the vehicle.
Troopers identified the victim as a 48-year-old woman from Linwood but withheld her name until next of kin is notified.
The woman was going south in a Dodge minivan when it ran off the road, overcorrected and hit several trees, troopers said. The woman was driving too fast for the rainy conditions, troopers said.
The woman wasn't wearing a seat belt, troopers said. She was found inside the vehicle and pronounced dead at the scene.
