WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — New details this morning on a fatal accident near the Isabel Holmes Bridge Wednesday night. State troopers tell WWAY that the victim is 31 year old Pender County resident Alisha Lee Sellers.

The accident happened on Highway 421 near the Isabel Holmes Bridge, and was called in to New Hanover County Dispatch at 8:59 Wednesday night.

Sellers had pulled over her car, and turned on her emergency flashers before getting out and walking southbound. That’s when James Lewis Jr. hit her while driving his truck.

Troopers are not citing Lewis for the accident and say they don’t know why Sellers had gotten out of her vehicle since it had not broken down.

The investigation is ongoing, and troopers have requested a toxicology report – even though they do not think drugs or alcohol were involved.

    Shame on all of those leaving rude comments. Instead of praying for her family, the family of the man involved, and for MY own family, I will now be praying for you. Those leaving cruel comments clearly have no idea how much any of the families involved are suffering. Karma will come back around. Alisha was one of the sweetest, most caring people I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. Even she would have felt bad for for those leaving such horrible comments about such a tragedy.

    Alisha Sellers was a dear friend of mine. We have developed a wonderful friendship over the years and I cant believe this has happened. I am emotionally damaged. She was the sweetest girl ever. I know her boyfriend of many years can hardly find words to describe how he is feeling. God bless him, and her heart broken family. I had tried to stay updated on what the reason was For her getting out of her car like she did, and I hope the ones that wanted to judge the situation without knowing feel really stupid right now. She was my girl and I dont know what to think right now. She was so young , and so beautiful, and didnt deserve to go so soon. I love you Alisha, and you will be missed more than you will ever know.
