Woman dies after crashing into trailer on I-40 shoulder
DURHAM, N.C. — A woman died Monday after she drove off Interstate 40 East near N.C. Highway 54 and crashed into a trailer on the grass shoulder around 10:40 p.m.

The woman, 19-year-old Roxsana Jimenez Dimas of Winston-Salem, apparently swerved in her 2007 Chrysler to avoid a vehicle that was parked on the left shoulder, according to Durham police.

She lost control of her car, crossed the eastbound lanes, ran off the right side of the road and struck a steel trailer parked in the grass, police said.
