HAVELOCK, CRAVEN COUNTY -

An elderly Havelock woman died in a two-vehicle accident in Craven County, according to the Highway Patrol.

Troopers said the 71-year-old woman failed to yield when she pulled out in front of  traffic on Highway 70 at Stately Pines Road, between New Bern and Havelock, Saturday afternoon.

An oncoming car then smashed into the side of the woman's vehicle, killing her, investigators said. Troopers did not identify the victim.
