Fatal Accident In Pitt County

One person is dead following an accident Friday afternoon in Pitt County.

Highway Patrol says 46-year-old Darlene Andrews was killed when she pulled her van out into the path of a Ford Explorer at the intersection of Statonsburg Road and Highway 258 near Farmville.

Lawmen say Andrews husband was a passenger and suffered minor injuries.

Two people in the Explorer had minor injuries.

That intersection is a 2-way stop with stops on Stantonsburg Road, but not on Highway 258.

Erika Taylor lives nearby and says she drives through that intersection almost every day.

She tells WITN, "I think there needs to be a four way stop here. I'm wondering what will it take to do something about this intersection because every other month theres an accident here, if it isn't every other week and now that someone's life was claimed at this intersection will there be someting done about it? Us as citizens we want to know what will be done about this intersection now."
