A Roanoke Rapids woman died Saturday following a crash on Sam Powell Dairy Road.

Sergeant A.S. Genao of the North Carolina State Highway Patrol said, according to a preliminary report by Trooper R.P. Dennis, Mary Squire Lewter was traveling south on Sam Powell Dairy Road about .4 miles north of Highway 903.

She traveled off the roadway to the right and then overcorrected. The vehicle traveled left of the centerline and overturned, ejecting the driver.

Genao said Lewter, 70, was pronounced deceased at the hospital.

Overcorrection was the contributing factor, according to the sergeant.
