On Wednesday, September 12, 2018, at approximately 6:35 p.m., the North Carolina State Highway Patrol investigated a fatal collision in Alexander County on Old Landfill Road, according to Jeffrey S. Swagger, Master Trooper, North Carolina State Highway Patrol.
A 1992 Toyota Camry was traveling north on Old Landfill Road, ran off the road to the right in a curve, struck a culvert, and collided with a tree. The driver, Daisy Darlene Javid, 60, of Taylorsville, was transported to Catawba Valley Medical Center in Hickory where she died shortly thereafter.
