Spring Lake, N.C. — A 42-year-old woman died in a single-vehicle wreck north of Spring Lake shortly after midnight Saturday, state troopers said.
Christine Alice Geier, of Spring Lake, was going south on Nursery Road when her 2008 Ford Mustang ran off the right side of the road, troopers said. The car struck a fence, then a tree and caught on fire.
Geier was trapped in the burning car, troopers said. She was pronounced dead at the scene.
Troopers said that Geier had left a party and was heading home.
Speed was a factor in the wreck, and troopers said they were also awaiting the results of toxicology tests.
