NEW HANOVER COUNTY, NC (WWAY) — A Wilmington woman is dead after she lost control going around a curve early Wednesday.

Troopers say it happened around 12:30 a.m. on Masonboro Loop Road, near Trails End Road.

They say 49-year-old Sandra Byrd was not wearing a seat-belt when it happened, and was the only person involved in the crash that happened just outside the Wilmington city limits.

Byrd was coming out of a curve when she ran off the road and lost control, causing her small SUV to overturn in the middle of the roadway.

Police, Deputies, Fire and EMS crews all responded to the scene, but they do not believe speeding to have been a factor.
