Salisbury woman identified as moped operator killed in Landis crash

LANDIS — N.C. Highway Patrol officials said a Salisbury woman was killed Tuesday night after her mo-ped was struck by a sport utility vehicle.

Kelly Absher Daniels, 36, was traveling north on North Main Street near Central Avenue in Landis around 6:30 p.m. when she was hit and killed.

The SUV driver, Haley Brooke Overcash, 20, of Landis, was charged with misdemeanor death by vehicle and unsafe movement.

Officials said Overcash was driving her 2004 Hyundai south on North Main Street when she started to turn left onto North Central Avenue. She turned in front of Daniels’ mo-ped heading in the opposite direction.

The mo-ped hit the front of the car. Daniels was wearing a Department of Transportation compliant helmet, but she died at the scene.

Speed and alcohol were not factors in this crash, officials said, Overcash essentially failed to see if the roadway was clear before turning, they said.
