A young woman named Keyona Verdell was tragically killed early Sunday morning in a pedestrian-car accident on New Hope Church Road in Raleigh, North Carolina.
The accident happened just before 6:15 am in the area near Green Road. Apparently, Ms. Verdell had been riding in a vehicle and decided to get out and walk. After exiting the vehicle, Ms. Verdell apparently attempted to cross New Hope Church Road when she was hit by a woman driving a Toyota car. The driver of the Toyota was cited for driving without a license.
Ms. Verdell was a student and cheerleader at Shaw University with a bright future.
