GREENSBORO, N.C. — An Asheville woman has been charged in the crash that killed a 10-year-old Greensboro boy in late November. The woman, Elaina Williams, had left her SUV in the road when she got a flat tire instead of moving the car to the shoulder.

Williams has been charged with death by a motor vehicle and no operator’s license, according to Assistant District Attorney Veronica Edmisten.

The 10-year-old boy was riding with this mother in a Ford sedan along Interstate 73 when the crash happened.

The sedan was one of several vehicles involved in the wreck. A man driving a Toyota pickup truck swerved to avoid Williams’ Chevy Tahoe but struck it. The sedan also tried to avoid the disabled SUV, but struck it, spun out of control and hit a tractor-trailer.
