Kinston Woman Hit, Killed By Van On NC 11

The NC Highway Patrol says a woman was hit and killed by a van Tuesday night on NC 11 just south of Kinston.

Troopers say 34-year-old Andrea Evette Moore of Kinston walked from Gulick Road onto NC 11 into the path of a van going north bound. The fatal accident happened at 8:12pm Tuesday night.

Troopers say they believe Moore had been drinking alcohol, which may have contributed to the incident. No charges have been filed on the driver of the van.

    Debora, first of all sorry for your loss and I pray for your family.. however you should be grieving with your family instead of worrying about what everyone is saying up here on these boards. All reading comments is going to do is raise your blood pressure... People are going to have an opinion this is why they allow comments. Obviously since this is close to home for you and comments are made about someone you love, of course you will take offense I would too but irregardless all one can go on is the news report. If your saying that the police &/or the media is lying then that's one thing but all anyone can go on is that a woman was walking down a major highway (not a good idea) and had been drinking therefore her perception of where she was at most likely was not good at all. It's a horrible tragedy that a young life is gone but hopefully her death may save another's life by not drinking & being out in public where bad decisions could cost your life. Prayers for your family.

    It is very interesting that so many comments have been made regarding the Evette. Yes I am a relative, none of our family has blamed the driver but you just don't go around speaking about things you do not know. The ways of peoples mindset puzzles me. Maybe people enjoy posting negative comments because they simply have nothing else to do. What if it was your family member? How would you feel if people were saying omg she should have been walking on the grass. Until you have all details why even comment. You know the world has changed when praying for families turns into gossip. Meditate on this: EPH 4:29 Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.

    well she should have been walking in the grass on the side of the rode and she may not would have gotten hit. i feel sorry for the driver even if it's not his fault. im sure he will feel bad and will need some support from family and god. maybe if someone wants to walk in or beside the road maybe wear bright or reflector clothing.

    My mother always told me not to play in the street. I guess this is the reason why. I feel sorry for both families. For the driver, it's not your fault. I hope you don't listen to the negative comments that people post here. Most of them have nothing to say, they just try to get people stirred up.

    Who is your pastor honey? and you are 100% right about all that you said, I just cant believe some of the thngs that comes out of peoples mouths!

    I am sure that the driver of the car is going through an emotional time, especially knowing and undersanding that God is the giver of all. Yes she was walking were she should not have been, amd maybe this is not the first time. I can't believe that we take so much time trying to put blame on anyone. Take a step back and pray for the family of the young lady can you imagine what they are going through and for the gentlemen that accidentally hit her. God has given us a gift no matter what life style they live. Pray for the one's that out in the streets and lost their direction. Pray that this will not be your mother, child, grandchild or sister Pray for the lost.

    Lower speed limits would indeed help. The slower the car is going the less time and distance it would need to stop. Thus, go slower and you decrease the likelihood you'll kill a pedestrian...or yourself/passengers.

      It's 45 there, can't get much slower on a major highway. Not drinking and walking in front of vehicles will also decrease the likelihood of being killed.

    Mama always said don't play in the street. I'm pretty sure this is the reason why she said that.

      Ok common sense and responsibility.....did your mother ever tell you to slander no one, to be peaceable and considerate, and to show true humility toward all men. This forum should not be ugly comments...instead a praying forum for this could easily happen to anyone. God forbid. When we stop pointing fingers at who was right or wrong we might even be able to see that accidents happen everyday. There were three witnesses that night. God, the driver and Evette. Everything else is opinions but choose your words carefully, you just never say what a person should or should not be doing. There is one judge. There is one truth and none of us know what that truth was. All we know is 2 families are very hurt by it.
