WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — A woman was killed Thursday evening in a head-on collision that sent two others to the hospital with serious injuries.

Deborah Lynn Moser, 56, of Winston-Salem, was traveling on Old Hollow Road when she crossed the center line and collided head-on with another vehicle shortly after 5 p.m.

Moser died at the scene as a result of her injuries.

The driver of the other car, Lisa Clay Burton, 28, and passenger Lamicha James Clay, 4, were transported to Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center with serious injuries.

An investigation is being handled by the Traffic Enforcement Unit.

This is the first traffic fatality for 2014 in Winston-Salem as compared to two at this same time in 2013.

      True, the story didn’t stay why she crossed the line but I think was spot on by reminding people what can happen when you use a phone while driving.

      Personally, I’m not going to risk my life over the use of a stupid phone…

    Sad to read about this, but another head on. I can’t help but believe it was distracted driving. Texting, talking on the phone, eating, drinking, all of these can cause you to take your eyes off the road. It take only a few seconds, that is all. Please people when you are driving, do just that and nothing else. Keep in mind it is not only your life, but the life of others too.

    My heart goes out to the family of the woman who died. Prayers for all of tou. My sister and son are the ones in the wreck. Very grateful they are alive.

    Very sad. Happened above my house. The lady who died had a dog with her who is okay but didn’t want to leave his owners side even though she died on impact. Praying for both families and the dog.

    I also pray for the family. I do deliveries all around N.C. When in Raleigh and Charlotte I still see people putting on make up, texting and any thing you can think of. Just not focused on driving. Many times I have cars swerve and change lanes with out looking. Just wish when driving people would focus only on doing that.

    Having lived in that area for many years I know that area well, there is a curve right there that has been the site of numerous serious wrecks. And most drivers traveling Old Hollow (Hwy 66) go well above the posted 45 mph, you hit that curve and are over the line before you know it and its to late to avoid another car..

    For all of you that assume texting I have known the deceased for 30 years and first of all she DID NOT TEXT AT ALL, I am certain. For all we know she may have had a tire blow out, or any other mechanical reason, we certainly do not know. I do know that she loved her family, her two boys very much and would not harm anyone. I am so sorry for the other lady and her child that were involved. I pray that God will be with them during this difficulty time. That is a very bad curve and my friend lived within a mile of this curve, so I know she was aware of the curve. I would ask that people try not to be so judgmental as this could easily happen to any of us. We need to be more concerned and caring for others instead of trying to say what happened when we really do not know.
