CORNELIUS, N.C. —
An elderly Huntersville woman died Tuesday morning after a crash on Statesville Road in Cornelius.
Cornelius Police identified the victim as 76-year-old Frances Edmund, who works at the Edmund Center of Neuromuscular and Massage Therapy in Cornelius, which is owned by her daughter.
Authorities said Edmund's car collided with two other drivers, causing cars to skid off the roadway.
"There was a whole lot of emergency vehicles...cops...the street was blocked off," said Les Kudla.
Kudla owns a small business, Carolina Tile & Stone, across the street from the crash site and watched as responders had to cut Edmund from her crumpled car.
Other witnesses said Edmund was still alert and talking with Medic workers as they loaded her into the ambulance, but police said she later died at the hospital.
"I'm so sorry, hate to hear something like this happen to anyone," Kudla said.
The other two drivers also went to the hospital to be treated for minor injuries.
The same area saw another fatal crash in 2005, when state troopers said Sasha Knox veered off the road, ran through the fence and crashed onto the interstate.
Authorities have not said if anyone will face charges in connection with the crash.
