Fatal crash shuts down east Charlotte road

CMPD said Albemarle Road is shut down in both directions near Rocky River Church Road.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- One person was killed in a crash in east Charlotte Monday afternoon, police said. 

According to Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police, officers responded to a serious crash on Albemarle Road between Rocky River Church Road and Beaver Farms Road a little after 3 p.m. When officers arrived, they found a 1993 Honda Civic and a 2015 Dodge Ram involved in the crash. The driver of the Honda, identified as 35-year-old Tracy Yandle Stiles, was pronounced dead at the scene. 

Investigators said Stiles was traveling west on Albemarle Road in the right lane when she drove into the left lane at a high rate of speed to pass another vehicle. When Stiles attempted to get back into the right lane, police said she lost control and slid across the median and into oncoming traffic. 

Investigators said the Honda's speed is a contributing factor in the crash and that alcohol does not appear to be involved. The crash remains under investigation.
