Garland, NC Woman Dead After Speeding Leads to Car Crash

An early morning crash on Wednesday, November 4, left one woman dead in Sampson County, NC.

Officials say the accident occurred just before 8 AM. A 2002 Honda Accord was heading east on N.C. 41, at a high rate of speed, near CC Road. It veered off the right side of the roadway and then came back onto the road in what witnesses describe as an “out of control” pattern of driving. Eventually, the car went off the left side of the road, where it hit a ditch and overturned.

The car ended up on its roof. The front seat passenger, Ciana Michelle Townsend, 49, was pronounced dead at the scene. She and the driver, Antwan Daniels, 42, were both wearing seatbelts, but the car’s airbags did not deploy. Daniels was injured and was taken to a hospital for treatment.

Officials are still investigating the accident, but believe speed may have been a factor. They say charges are pending against the driver.

Motorists should obey speed limits and drive safely. However, vehicles also must meet safety standards, and problems with airbags can contribute to death or injury in some situations. Consumer Reports found that airbags in 2001-2003 Hondas are among the most likely to be reported for problems. In 2016, the NHTSA urged drivers with these models of cars to have the airbags replaced.
