A Colerain woman died Monday from injuries she sustained in a two-vehicle wreck that also injured her passenger and shut down a Memorial Drive intersection for three hours.

Carolyn Taylor Brown, 73, was driving a Dodge minivan south on Memorial Drive shortly after 2:30 p.m. on Monday. A preliminary investigation revealed that Brown failed to stop for a red light at Memorial’s intersection with Regency Boulevard and Thomas Langston Road, according to a news release issued by the Greenville Police Department.

The van collided with a Honda Accord that was westbound on Regency Boulevard. The Honda, driven by 50-year-old Develon Ray Jacobs of Winterville, crashed into the driver’s side door of the van, spinning it around and knocking it over on its passenger side.

Brown and her passenger, Danise Taylor Harrell, 78, also of Colerain, were transported to Vidant Medical Center. Harrell, Brown’s sister, is expected to survive, the release said. Brown died of her injuries.

Jacobs, the only occupant of the Honda, was not injured, police said.

Investigators took photographs and reconstructed the incident on Monday, using a digital system called Sparrow Technology that will digitally recreate the wreck.

The intersection is not equipped with a red-light camera but does have a traffic camera, and the dispatchers were able to view footage of the wreck. Dispatchers told the officers at the scene that it appeared the white van ran the red light, according to Kristen Hunter, spokeswoman for the police department.

As officers worked at the scene, the southbound lanes of Memorial Drive were closed at that intersection, with traffic being rerouted onto Regency or Thomas Langston Road.

At 4:45 p.m., traffic was backed up on Memorial to Country Club Drive and traffic on Southwest Greenville Boulevard at the intersection of South Memorial also was congested.

At the intersection, southbound traffic was rerouted onto Regency Boulevard to go around the wreck. Other drivers cut through the parking lots of stores and shops on the west side of Memorial to go around the wreck.

The road reopened Monday evening about three hours after the wreck, police reported.
