Police have charged a man with vehicular homicide and other crimes after a fatal crash earlier this month. 

The crash happened on the afternoon of March 14. 

Police say a 1993 Honda Del Sol was traveling northbound at a high rate of speed on North Main Avenue in Erwin when the driver lost control. 

The Honda struck a curb and went airborne for about 50 feet, striking a sign and other objects near Valley Funeral Home. Police say a woman was standing in her yard just three feet from the curb when the vehicle hit the curb, nearly striking her. 

The passenger in the Honda, identified as Elizabeth I. Lopez, died from injuries sustained in the crash. She was not wearing a seatbelt according to police. 

Police say Anthony A. Overstreet was driving the car even though his license had been revoked for a DUI conviction in Greene County back in 2013. 

Erwin police have charged Overstreet with vehicular homicide, driving with a revoked license, two counts of felony reckless endangerment, speeding, and violation of financial responsibility.
