A 60-year-old Ohio woman died in a head-on collision May 4 in Southport.
Deborah Dunkle, of Cleveland Heights, was driving north on N.C. 211 when she swerved at the West Trace intersection to avoid hitting the vehicle in front of her and struck a dump truck instead, N.C. Highway Patrol Trooper C.S. Thompson said.
Dunkle was pronounced dead at the scene, Thompson said.
The wreckage caused lengthy traffic delays on N.C. 211 that afternoon, forcing traffic to detour to Midway Road in Bolivia.
