Weldon police continue to investigate a fatal crash which occurred Friday night in the 200 block of Washington Avenue.

Sergeant T.L. Mason said police are still investigating to determine the contributing factors in the crash, which occurred shortly after 11:15 p.m. about a block or so from town hall.

In a statement this morning, Mason said Officer T. Revis responded to the scene after receiving a call a vehicle was overturned.

Revis determined it was a single-vehicle crash and three women were in the vehicle. Two of the occupants were transported to Vidant North for treatment by Halifax County EMS. Mason said this morning their conditions were not immediately.

Another occupant, he said in the statement, was pronounced dead at the scene.

The North Carolina State Highway Patrol assisted. The Weldon Fire Department also responded.

The police department is not releasing names as the investigation is ongoing.
