An 86-year-old woman died Wednesday after a single-car accident in Clayton.
Ruby Lee Walters, 86, of 303 Dairy Road, Clayton, was the passenger in a car driven by Sandra Lee Culhane, 67, also of 303 Dairy Road.
Clayton police said Culhane did not stop at a stop sign at about 7 a.m. Her car hit a drainage ditch at the intersection of Dairy and Barber Mill roads.
Both women were taken to WakeMed, where Walters died.
Culhane was still being treated as of Wednesday afternoon but was expected to recover, said police spokeswoman Stacy Beard.
Beard said charges against Culhane are pending.
