A two-vehicle accident on N.C. Highway 99 in Pantego Thursday morning resulted in the hospitalization of one driver and the death of another.
Alison Fields, a resident of Williamston, was driving a 1993 Ford van when she hit a 2003 International fertilizer spreader truck, according to law officials.
“She was coming out of a curve and came out left of center and hit that truck head on,” said First Sergeant Brandon Craft with the North Carolina State Highway Patrol.
Craft described the fertilizer truck as a “big truck with huge tires.” There were no other vehicles involved in the accident.
The driver of the fertilizer truck was injured and taken to the hospital in a personal vehicle. Fields later died at Vidant Medical Center, where she had been airlifted.
