Roxboro, N.C. — A 25-year-old Durham woman was killed Monday night when a car struck her from behind on U.S. Highway 158 outside of Roxboro.
The driver, 18-year-old David Winstead, initially left the scene, but returned later with relatives, according to the state Highway Patrol.
Charges against him are pending.
Troopers said Winstead hit Eva Maria Cook while she and her sister were trying to push their broken-down car out of the road around 10:20 p.m.
Cook's sister was not hurt.
