Victim identified in fatal crash on I-40 West in Kernersville

KERNERSVILLE, N.C. -- A woman died in a single-vehicle crash that temporarily shut down a lane of Interstate 40 West in Forsyth County early Tuesday morning.

The crash happened around 5:30 a.m. at mile marker 202, about a mile east of Union Cross Road.

Police said Barbara Roseboro Mock, 66, was driving a 2001 white Ford Ranger when it went off the left side of the road. She then overcorrected, crossed both westbound lanes, collided with a guardrail and rolled the vehicle.

Barbara Williams Worthington, 58, who was a passenger in the vehicle, was ejected when the Ford Ranger rolled. She died at the scene.

Mock was taken to Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center for treatment but has since been released.

Kernersville police said alcohol "does not appear to be a factor in the crash."

The right westbound lane of the interstate reopened around 11:30 a.m.

The Kernersville Police Department Traffic Reconstruction Team is currently investigating the collision. Anyone with information pertaining to this investigation is asked to contact the Kernersville Police Department.
