SMYRNA, N.C. -

A woman is dead and a man is seriously injured after a crash in Carteret County.

It happened around 5 o'clock Monday along Highway 70 in the town of Smyrna.

Troopers say 51-year-old Mary Matlock ran off the road in her Chevy SUV, overcorrected, and then went left of center. That's when she collided head-on with a Ford SUV driven by 52-year-old Eric Pittman.

Pittman was airlifted to Vidant Medical Center.

Troopers say Matlock was pinned in her vehicle for about an hour and died at the scene.

Speed was a factor in the crash. Troopers are also waiting on the medical examiner's report to see if there may have been a medical issue involved.
