Dunn, N.C. — A Sampson County woman was killed Sunday afternoon in a collision as she was trying to turn at a Dunn intersection.
The North Carolina State Highway Patrol said Kimberly Baggett, 53, of Godwin, was hit by a vehicle shortly before 5 p.m. as she was turning left from Strickland Road onto Mingo Church Road.
Investigators said Baggett had failed to stop at a stop sign when Kenneth Stephens, who had the right of way and was traveling north on Mingo Church Road, hit her vehicle.
Stephens and a passenger in his vehicle, Brandy Ardillo, were taken to Betsy Johnson Regional Hospital with injuries that did not appear to be life-threatening, authorities said.
The Highway Patrol said Stephens was cited for driving while impaired and driving with a revoked license.
