DURHAM — Police say a fatal accident that closed North Roxboro Road for several hours Wednesday afternoon began when a car crossed the center line and hit a pickup truck head-on.
Amy Michelle Stone of Hurdle Mills was driving northbound on North Roxboro near Northern High School when she apparently drifted over the center line at about 2:15 p.m., according to Durham police. Stone’s Kia Optima hit a southbound Ford F350 driven by Eric Pendergrass, 18, of Durham, police said.
Stone, 34, was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident. Pendergrass and three other teen-aged passengers were taken to the hospital with injuries that did not appear to be life threatening.
The road remained closed in both directions for several hours.
