A woman died after crashing her vehicle early Sunday morning in Pitt County , according to a trooper.

Karen Bonner, 53, was driving north on Highway 43 at approximately 1:30 a.m., the trooper said.

Bonner ran off the road, then hit a ditch and the car rolled, the trooper said.

The crash was between Ivan Harris Road and Bess Farm Road.

Speed and alcohol both played a factor in the crash, the trooper said.
