Last Friday morning was a fatal one for a North Carolina resident when the victim/driver when she hit a curb and ultimately flipped her car into a church yard.
The car wreck took place around 7:00 a.m., where Kathleen Bland, age 27, was killed when her 2002 Toyota Highlander she was operating hit a curb, went onto a pedestrian sidewalk, then eventually, after flipping multiple times, landed in a church yard. The wreck took place at the intersection of East Sugar Creek Road and North Tryon Street, closing the intersection for over three hours. Sadly, Bland was pronounced dead on scene at 7:21 a.m.
Bland’s car hit three other vehicles when it began to flip across the intersection after hitting a pole. Three other people suffered minor injuries during the wreck, police said. Two of the drivers were taken to a nearby hospital, where they were shortly after released with non-life threatening injuries. The third driver was treated on scene, and only sustained minor injuries as well.
“It is unknown at this time whether there were any medical conditions that may have been a factor in the crash,” Charlotte-Mecklenburg police said in a statement. However, speed is believed to have contributed to Bland losing control of her vehicle.
