COLUMBUS COUNTY, NC (WWAY) -- A Bladen County woman is dead after being run over by a car in Columbus County over the weekend.

Highway Patrol says 22-year-old Kristy Nicole Yarbrough was run over by a friend off Old Stake Road just outside of Chadbourn early Saturday morning. Today family members in Bladenboro laid Yarbrough to rest.

They tell us she was at a party with her friend Mitchell Ransom II when Yarbrough left the party on foot after Ransom refused to take her back home. The family says Ransom went after her in his car when he ended up hitting and killing her.

Yarbrough's sister says Kristy was well liked by everyone and she will always remember her outgoing personality.

"Anybody that met her absolutely loved her," Chassidy Yarbrough said. "She was hilarious and sweet. She'll be missed by a whole lot of people."

Ransom is in the Columbus County Jail tonight. He faces charges of involuntary manslaughter, felony death by vehicle and driving while impaired.
