Authorities release name of Mocksville woman killed in crash

MOCKSVILLE — Authorities have identified a Mocksville woman killed in a wreck on U.S. 801 near the Iredell County line Thursday.
According to a North Carolina State Highway Patrol crash report, Laura Riley, 45, of Pine Ridge Road, died before she could be rescued from a Chevrolet station wagon.
A silver Toyota ran off the road to the right, overcorrected and struck the Chevy about 7:45 a.m., the North Carolina State Highway Patrol said.
The Toyota spun around, facing the opposite direction, but the Chevrolet slammed into a nearby tree.
Emergency responders initially said Riley was speaking with crews while they worked to get her out, but she died before being pulled from the car.
According to an obituary, Riley loved to play the piano and was a member of Trinity Baptist Church.
