An 88-year-old Bolivia woman was killed Tuesday, Sept. 9, when her vehicle was struck by an on-coming SUV on N.C. 87 near Bolivia.
According to 1st Sgt. J.O. Holmes, of the N.C. State Highway Patrol, Eleanor Waterford Harden was traveling north on N.C. 87 when she attempted to turn left onto Danford Road. She failed to yield and turned into the path of an oncoming SUV.
Speed was not a factor, Holmes said, noting both drivers were driving the speed limit.
Harden was taken to Dosher Memorial Hospital in Southport where she died, Holmes said.
