    GLEN ALPINE, NC - Officials say a woman is dead after a crash on Highway 70 west of Glen Alpine in Burke County.

    Lisa Kirby, 53, died after the impact caused her car to flip over.



    "I couldn't, it still hasn't sunk in yet it,” cousin Ronnie Gentry said. “(It) still hasn't sunk in yet but by the grace of God, we'll be alright."

    Christopher Ogilvie was driving a pickup truck when he crossed the centerline striking Kirby's car, troopers said.

    He was flown from the scene by medical helicopter.

    Ogilvie’s license was suspended after he was convicted in connection with a high-speed chase and for a felonious restraint case in McDowell County where investigators said he also violated his probation.  

    Charges are pending in the case and some of Ogilvie's blood will be tested for impairment, troopers said. 

    Kirby’s family members said that they want justice.

    "He's to blame but I hope he is right with the lord,” Gentry said. 

     State troopers said they will wait on the blood test results before going to the district attorney to seek charges in the case.
