WILSON, N.C. -

A Wilson mother is dead following a DWI crash.

It happened Friday afternoon in the 700 block of Hines Street in Wilson.

Officers responding to the scene found a Ford Ranger truck with one occupant inside that had collided with a Toyota truck occupied by three. The driver of the Ford Ranger, 20-year-old Semeer Patel had apparently failed to stop at a stop sign at Manchester Street, colliding with the Toyota truck.

48-year-old Samantha Colvin died as a result of her injuries. 67-year-old Martha Hinnant, who was one of the passengers in the Toyota truck, was airlifted to Vidant Medical Center. The other passenger, 21-year-old Maryse Colvin, was treated at Wilson Memorial Hospital and released.

Patel was charged with Involuntary Manslaughter, Felony Serious Injury for Impaired Driving, DWI, Stop Sign Violation, Simple Possession of Schedule IV Controlled Substance, and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia.  

He's in the Wilson County Jail under a $25,000 secure bond.

Investigation into the accident continues.
