A 57-year-old Archdale woman died in a freak accident along Interstate 85 Sunday afternoon when her husband backed over her.
A dispatcher with the N.C. Highway Patrol said Betty Passmore Brinkley died around 2:30 p.m.
Passmore was driving a car north on I-85, and her husband was driving a recreational vehicle. Just across the Yadkin River Bridge in Davidson County, her car had a flat tire. She pulled onto the shoulder and got out of the car.
According Trooper S.E. McHenry’s report, her husband pulled off the highway a short distance away and began backing toward her car. At some point, she fell down, and the RV backed over her. She was ruled dead at the scene. Her husband’s name was not available, and no charges were filed.
The accident caused a significant backup on I-85.
