Dorothy Tucker – Troopers have identified an elderly Kinston woman who was killed in a weekend crash in Wayne County. Trooper J.T. Creech says 78-year-old Dorothy Tucker was a passenger in a car that was hit by another car Sunday afternoon.
The crash happened around 1:20 p.m. on Highway 55 and Emmaus Chruch Road, between Mount Olive and Seven Springs. Creech says a 17-year-old ran a stop sign on Emmaus Church Road and hit the car that Tucker was in which was heading east on Highway 55.
