A woman badly burned in a fiery crash on Interstate 40 in Johnston County last month has died from her injuries.
Angela Jones, 32, of Raleigh made an illegal u-turn in the median of I-40 near Benson on April 11th and was struck by a Hyundai SUV. Jones Nissan Murano was pushed into the path of a Toyota SUV and was then struck by a tractor trailer. Her vehicle burst into flames.
Jones was able to roll out of her car on fire. Her 9 year-old son, Daniel, escaped but her older son, Isaiah Jones, 11, died inside the vehicle. A medical examiner determined Isaiah died instantly from injuries sustained in the crash and prior to the vehicle being consumed by the fire.
A NC Highway Patrol official confirmed Thursday Mrs. Jones died May 13th while at UNC Hospitals in Chapel Hill. She sustained third degree burns to 80 percent of her body.
Two Garner women in the Hyundai were seriously injured in the crash. The occupants in the Toyota and semi were uninjured.
