Off Duty Police Officer Charged In Connection With Woman's Death

An off duty police officer has now been charged in an accident that killed a community college employee.

Wilda Turner was killed in the June 1st crash on Highway 11, across from the Kinston Drag Strip.

Troopers have charged Michael Hoffman with misdemeanor death by motor vehicle.

Troopers say Hoffman, who is a Pink Hill police officer, was driving his own pickup truck when it crossed the the center line and hit Turner's vehicle head-on.

There is no immediate word from Pink Hill officials whether the misdemeanor charge will have any impact on Hoffman's job as a police officer.
