— A two-car crash Friday morning near Tryon Hills Shopping Center has left a Garner woman dead.

Police said Cynthia Dove Morrison, driving south on Durham Drive, had stopped at the intersection with Tryon Road. At that moment, a tractor-trailer turned onto Durham Drive, blocking Morrison's view of the traffic following the trailer.

As she pulled out onto Tryon Road, her car was hit by a pickup truck that had been behind the larger vehicle.

None of the three people in the pickup truck suffered serious injuries.

The accident occurred about 9:15 a.m.
