Officials in Rowan County said a woman was killed in an accident Tuesday afternoon.
The incident happened at about 2 p.m. on Christy Creek Road just past Messer Road in rural Rowan County. Officials say the woman, Charli Wright, 26, of Sandy Hook, was ejected from the vehicle, a 2000 Chevy Tahoe. She was taken to Saint Claire Regional Medical Center, where she was pronounced dead.
Police say they believe Wright somehow lost control of the vehicle, exited the right shoulder of the roadway and struck a rock embankment. The vehicle then overturned and Wright was ejected.
