A Rosedale, Gilmer County, woman was killed on impact after she lost control of her auto in a turn, according to Braxton Deputy Ron Clay. The accident occurred near the village of Rosedale on Monday.

Thirty-year-old Charline Hurst was "traveling 50-55 miles an hour in a 35-mile zone," stated Clay after interviewing eyewitnesses. "She was not wearing a seat belt," he said.

Hurst, who was driving a 1987 Olds, slid on the wet highway and crashed into a 1996 Blazer driven by 39-year-old Gassaway resident, Lisa Michelle Cottrill. Cottrill, who was wearing a seat belt, was treated at a Gassaway hospital.

"It was a massive head-on crash with speed as a factor," said Deputy Clay.
