A woman was killed when her car flipped end over end and struck a tree in Beaufort County. It happened Saturday around 11:00 p.m.
First Sgt. Kenneth Pitts with the Highway Patrol says 41-year-old Jeanette Aubrey was driving east on Crystal Beach Road, about 18 miles east of Chocowinity. Pitts says Aubrey's 1996 Honda went off the right side of the road, then crossed over the left side where it hit a culvert and flipped end over end. The top of the car struck a tree. Aubrey was pronounced dead at the scene.
Pitts says excessive speed was a factor and they believe alcohol may have been involved.
The Highway Patrol has Aubrey listed with a Vanceboro address, but aren't sure if that was her most recent place of residence.
