Woman dies on birthday in Stokes Ferry Road wreck

SALISBURY — A Salisbury woman died on her 38th birthday when she was thrown from the vehicle she was driving Saturday on Stokes Ferry Road.
Charlotte Anne Lambert, of 985 Shore Acres Road, was driving a 2005 GMC sports utility vehicle at 2:55 a.m. Saturday southeast on Stokes Ferry Road, according to the N.C. Highway Patrol.
Lambert, who was traveling alone, drove off the right side of the road. Her vehicle struck a culvert and she lost control, the report said.
The vehicle overturned and Lambert, who was not wearing a seat belt, was ejected, the Highway Patrol said.
She was transfered to Rowan Regional Medical Center by the Rowan Rescue Squad but died from her injuries.
The Highway Patrol estimates Lambert was traveling at 65 mph, faster than the 50 mph posted speed limit.
Investigators suspect alcohol was a factor in the collision, First Sgt. B.E. Hower said.
