RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) – A Raleigh woman suffered hypothermia and other injuries after lying pinned for hours beneath a wrecked car along New Bern Avenue, according to a police crash report.
Wednesday morning, Kayla Yvonne Smith, 23, of 4140 Tristone Falls Ave., was driving east on New Bern Avenue near King William Road, according to the report.
The 2000 Honda passenger car she was driving went off the road to the right, hitting a utility pole and snapping it near its base, according to police. The car then ran into a smaller tree and brush in the wood line, which caused it to rotate 180 degrees and roll onto its left side, the report said. Smith, who was not wearing a seat belt, was partially ejected and ended up pinned, with only her lower extremities inside the car, the report indicated. It was several hours before a passing motorist spotted her at about 7:25 a.m., police said.
She suffered “moderate hypothermia” and other injuries, according to the report, and an open container of alcohol was found inside the vehicle.
