Police: Man loses control of pickup truck, kills 21-year-old woman in High Point

  • 0

HIGH POINT — A driver of a pickup truck lost control, causing a crash that killed a woman in another car over the weekend.

The 21-year-old woman was driving south on U.S. Highway 29 when, police said, a Chevy Silverado that had been going north veered into oncoming traffic and hit her car. The woman — identified as Sunshine Nichole Williams — died in the crash.

The crash also left two people hurt and closed the highway for several hours on Saturday, according to High Point police.

Police said the man driving the Chevy Silverado pickup truck on the highway “ran off the roadway to the left and then overcorrected.”  That’s when he reportedly lost control of the truck, which careened across a “grass median, overturned and struck” Williams’ car.

According to police, the Silverado “came to rest upside down on the guard rail,” and the driver had to be extricated.

The committee on Tuesday approved a statement that College Park Baptist Church of Greensboro was not in “friendly cooperation” due to its “open affirmation, approval and endorsement of homosexual behavior,” which conflicts with the denomination's theological conservative positions. In fact, College Park had voted in 1999 to leave the denomination, and its website makes a point about it not being a member of the Southern Baptist Convention but rather of more progressive Baptist bodies.
