GREENVILLE, N.C. (WITN) - A Greenville woman has been charged in a deadly car crash that killed her passenger last month.

Court documents show Breanna Sutton was charged Wednesday by the Highway Patrol with felony death by vehicle. The 24-year-old woman had previously been charged with DWI and reckless driving to endanger.

The crash happened early February 6th on Staton Mill Road.

Killed in the single-vehicle crash was Brandon Armstrong. The accident report said neither Sutton nor Armstrong were wearing a seat belt when her vehicle veered off the highway, hit a tree, and then a road sign.

The accident report said the man was thrown from the vehicle and into a ditch.

Sutton’s bond was increased from $100,000 to $500,000 and Friday morning she remained in the Pitt County jail.
