A woman died when she lost control of her car while speeding on Albemarle Road in east Charlotte on Monday, veered across the median and hit a Dodge Ram pickup truck, police said.
Tracy Yandle Stiles, 35, was pronounced dead at the scene by Medic. The driver of the pickup was hospitalized with minor injuries.
The crash occurred at 3:14 p.m. and closed Albemarle Road at Rocky River Church Road until 8 p.m. as police investigated.
Stiles was driving a Honda Civic west on Albemarle Road from Blair Road toward Rocky River Church Road when she sped into the left lane to pass another car, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police said. She lost control when she tried to return to the right lane, according to police.
The Civic slid across Albemarle Road’s westbound lanes, over the concrete median and into eastbound lanes, where it hit the pickup.
