HIGH POINT, N.C. — State troopers say a mother died and her daughter was injured Sunday afternoon in a crash on U.S. 311 in Randolph County.
According to Trooper D.S. Payne, the two-vehicle wreck happened just before 3:30 p.m. on Highway 311 near Lilly Flower Road.
Payne says a Ford F-350 truck that was headed south on the highway took a curve too quickly, went across the center lines and struck a 2000 Dodge Neon before going off the roadway.
Norma Mendez Diaz Deleon, 39, of Franklinville, was driving the car. Payne says Deleon died as a result of the collision.
Deleon’s 16-year-old daughter, Brenda Hernandez, was injured. Payne says Hernandez was in critical condition when she was taken to Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center, but a hospital spokesperson said Hernandez was in fair condition as of Monday morning.
Roger Dale Allen, 34, of Trinity, was driving the truck. Payne says Allen was taken to High Point Regional Hospital to be treated for injuries, but Payne did not know the extent of Allen’s injuries.
Payne says alcohol and speed were contributing factors in the crash. Charges against Allen are pending.
