RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) — Raleigh police have identified a woman who died in a crash along Western Boulevard Saturday morning.

Officers were dispatched to the single-vehicle crash in along Western Boulevard near Boylan Avenue around 8:10 a.m.

Stephanie Yamel Kelly, whose age was not provided, of Raleigh, died in the wreck.

Police said Kelly was seen “driving erratically” at an estimated 60 mph in a 45 mph zone before the crash.

“Once she passed Boylan Avenue and entered into the curve east of the intersection, she ran off the road to the right,” a Raleigh police report said.

The car, a 2010 Kia, then hit a tree head-on “with no signs of braking,” the report said.

The car then went down an embankment, where it stopped.
