Southern Nash teen dies in car accident
Hathaway
A 16-year-old Elm City girl was killed in a single car accident after her vehicle ran off the road on Saturday.

According to Sergeant Eddie Thomas, of the North Carolina Highway Patrol, Caroline Wynne Hathaway was traveling west on Sandy Cross Road around 5:30 p.m. when she came across a curve and lost control of her 2000 Isuzu Rodeo. Thomas said Hathaway ran off the road to the left and her vehicle went into a ditch and hit a tree. Hathaway was ejected from the vehicle and it landed on top of her, killing her.

Thomas said at the time of the accident, it had been snowing. However, the roads were not covered in snow or ice but were slick in some parts. Thomas said the weather was the primary cause of the accident. He added that though Hathaway was not speeding, she was exceeding a safe speed for the road conditions at the time.

Two other girls, Amber Hunter, 16, and Caroline Brown, 15, were also in the vehicle and received minor injuries. Thomas said Hunter, who was sitting in the front passenger seat, was wearing a seat belt. Both Hathaway and Brown, who was sitting in the back seat, were not wearing seat belts.

Hathaway was a junior at Southern Nash High School.

She is survived by her parents, Mark Joseph Hathaway and Carrolle Cochran Hathaway, two sisters, Mary Hannah Hathaway and Katie Susan Hathaway and brother, John Carlyle Hathaway.

Funeral services for Hathaway were held on Tuesday night at Southern Nash High School.
