What Happened: A 72 year-old woman died in a two-car crash when another car slammed into hers as she was making a left hand turn.
According to media reports, Geraldine Lawson, from Kernersville, North Carolina, was driving westbound on NC 158 and making a left turn onto Darrow Road, when her car was hit by another car that was traveling east on NC 158.
