Goldsboro police are investigating the crash that claimed a local woman's life.

Vera Watkins, 64, of Goldsboro was killed when her SUV crashed late Monday morning. Police say witnesses saw Watkins driving fast northbound on Spence Ave. She then crossed over the center line and went off the left side of the road into the woods. The SUV flipped several times before coming to a rest between Royall Ave. and the railroad tracks.

Police say three vehicles were damaged by flying debris as they faced east on Royall Ave., waiting for the light to turn green.

Police say they're waiting on information from the Medical Examiner to help determine the cause of the fatal crash.
