SAMPSON COUNTY – The State Highway Patrol says speed was a factor in a single vehicle traffic accident. It happened at 2:00am Saturday on NC 24, one mile east of Autryville, near Horseshoe Road.
Troopers said a 2012 Chevy Tahoe, driven by Brianna M. Boone, age 28, of Rose Hill, NC was traveling east on NC 24 at approximately 100 miles per hour. The SUV ran off the road on the right, reentered the highway out of control, ran off the road to the left, and overturned multiple times, ejecting the driver.
Boone was pronounced dead at the scene. There were no other occupants in the vehicle.
The accident was investigated by Trooper A.C. Hall.
