NC woman dies after backing BMW into I-95 traffic near Wilson

WILSON, N.C. (AP) — The North Carolina Highway Patrol says a Greenville woman has died after she backed her car into oncoming traffic on Interstate 95 near Wilson.


Trooper J.A. Harris told The Wilson Times that 24-year-old Neela Sai Desraj had been parked along I-95 around 2:10 a.m. Sunday when she backed her BMW SUV into traffic.

A passing Jeep Wrangler hit her vehicle, which burst into flames. Harris said the Jeep  was being driven by a man from Canada who was taken to a Raleigh hospital for treatment of a leg injury.

Harris says it’s unclear why the woman backed into the traffic lanes.

The newspaper reported her Facebook profile stated she had attended a medical school in Bangalore, India.
