Troopers: Speed A Factor In Fatal Onslow County Accident

The Highway Patrol says that a woman in the east has lost her life following a single car accident.

Troopers out of Jacksonville say that 36-year-old Christina Banks of Richlands was driving east on Richlands Loop Road around noon Saturday, when she ran off the road to the right in a 1998 Ford Mustang coupe, over corrected and struck a ditch before overturning. Officials say that Banks died at the scene.

Troopers say that speed was a contributing factor to the accident.
