A woman was killed after hitting a parked dump truck with her ’98 Oldsmobile on Fairbluff Road at 3:15 a.m. on Monday.
Cynthia Melton Marlik, 2478 Golf Ball Circle in Charlotte, failed to make a sharp left while driving 35 mph on Fairbluff Road just two blocks from where she lived. The dump truck was unoccupied and parked off to the side of the road. Marlik was transported by Brooks Ambulance to Cleveland Regional Medical Center where she died at 5 a.m.
Police were suspicious alcohol had been involved, so toxicology tests were performed. Results have yet to be determined.
