ROCKINGHAM COUNTY, N.C. — An 81-year-old woman died on Saturday night after she crashed her vehicle and was hit by another driver when she walked into the road, according to highway patrol.

About 6:18 p.m. on US 29 north of Reidsville, an 81-year-old woman ran off the road and hit the cable median.

After the crash, she got out of the vehicle and went into the road.

The driver of the car that hit the elderly woman was a 25-year-old old woman.
