Highway Patrol and several other agencies responded to the scene of a fatal accident early Sunday morning.
Authorities say 21-year-old Sonya Clark lost control of her car, slammed into the edge of the Leechville bridge on Highway 264 and crashed into the Pungo River.
They say Clark did not survive the crash, although it is unclear whether she died on impact or if she drowned. Her car was pulled from the water in three pieces. There were no other passengers in the car.
The Leechville bridge, which connects Beaufort and Hyde Counties, was blocked off Sunday morning. Traffic was rerouted to Highway 45.
