A Taylorsville woman was killed in an automobile accident in Alexander County yesterday (September 12). The deceased is 60-year-old Daisy Darlene Javid.
At approximately 6:35 p.m. Wednesday, the North Carolina State Highway Patrol responded to the accident on Old Landfill Road. A 1992 Toyota Camry driven by Ms. Javid was traveling north on Old Landfill Road. She ran off the right side of the road in a curve, struck a culvert and hit a tree. Ms. Javid was transported to Catawba Valley Medical Center in Hickory where she passed away a short time later.
The Highway Patrol says excessive speed appears to be a factor in the collision. Ms. Javid was wearing a seatbelt. The accident remains under investigation.
