Elderly Woman Killed In Martin County Crash

An elderly woman was killed after a head-on crash in Martin County Thursday night.

State troopers say Nick Swain, who was 80 years old, died at the scene.

The wreck happened on U.S. 64 near the Martin-Washington County line around 8:00 p.m.

Troopers say Gary Woolard of Williamson was the other driver involved and he's in stable condition at Pitt County Memorial Hospital.

Troopers believe the woman may have been disorientated which could have caused the accident.

    My mother and nick were best friends for many years. She gave me my first motorcycle helment in 1965. I can remember many good times with her and Jack. jack and nick took us to our first Nascar race in the mid 60's.As a teenager,i went to work at there gas station after school. I can remember how proud a woman she was. she was also a very atractive woman.Jack always had her a nice Lincoln to drive.she has worked her entire life,Never wanting too be idle. she will be missed. i'll also miss her Fudge.

    Mr. Butch Griffin will not be getting my vote now. Post in a section for Mr. Griffin. This section is for Miss Nick.

    I did not know this person, but have read the good comments and memories from a few people who have posted. I am so glad that you had the opportunity to know what seems to have been an exceptional woman and to have had her in your life whether it was a short time or your entire life. I am sorry abt her accident and will pray for you all to get through this. On another note, I would like to say I am ashamed of comments from people who are worried abt the word "elderly". It was not an ugly word. I hope to live to be "elderly" one day and to be surrounded with family and friends at that time. I am equally as disappointed and ashamed that someone would even consider having the rudeness to place a post up here abt someone filing to be sheriff yesterday. It has nothing to do with this article and the loss of your loved one. I will pray for you all and the other man that was injured. Accidents can happen to anyone of any age and ability.

    Wanted to give Martin County Citizens some great news. Butch Griffin filed to run for Sheriff yesterday 2/19. Give him your support. He has many years of Law Enforcement under his belt and is a good man and a fair man

    I had a opportunity to work with Nick at Belk and my thoughts and prayers go out to her family.

    I can not believe how you people pick ONE word just to comment about a sweet lady that lost her life due to an accident, My God, if you can't say something meaningful for her family and friends, then find someone else to complain about correct wording, the word elderly shows respect and compassion for our elderly folks, Elderly and proud of it!
