MOCKSVILLE, N.C. -- Highway patrol officers are investigating a fatal crash on I-40 Westbound.
It happened around 5:30 a.m. Tuesday at MM 165 near U.S. 64 in Davie County.
A witness told Trooper Ward the female driver swerved off the road to the left and hit a tree. So far the investigation revealed no evidence the driver was swerving to avoid an object in the road.
Troopers cannot say if speed or alcohol were factors in the crash.
The victim was not from Davie County. Troopers are working to notify next of kin before they release her identity.
