Posted August 22, 2013
Durham, N.C. — A woman was charged Thursday in connection with a collision that killed a Durham man walking along a road just outside of Durham's city limit.
Elizabeth Ekberg, 22, of Bahama, faces one count each of misdemeanor death by motor vehicle and failing to reduce speed to avoid a collision in connection with the Aug. 5 wreck that killed Brian Gene Long, 30.
Long was struck from behind, the North Carolina State Highway Patrol said, and died at the scene.
Investigators have said that alcohol was not a factor in the case, but they have not said what caused the collision.
