(August 2019) The N.C. Highway Patrol says that it is investigating a single car accident on Highway 101 in Beaufort NC near Old Winberry Road in which a 31 year old woman from New Bern was killed after crossing the center line, hitting a sign, and finally ending up in a culvert near a field.
It is not known what caused the accident that was found Wednesday morning by a passerby. State police allege that the accident happened Tuesday night but because of high vegetation the accident vehicle was not visible from the road.
In recent years, Highway 101 in Beaufort and Harlowe has seen an uptick in very serious fatal car wrecks.
