A Hays woman critically injured in a Jan. 24 collision on Winkler Mill Road died Jan. 28 at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center in Winston-Salem, according to Trooper K.J. Oakes of the N.C. Highway Patrol.

Brenda Church Roope, 75, driver of a 2007 Ford, sustained blunt force trauma in the wreck, which occurred about a tenth of a mile from the Wilkesboro city limits, Oakes said.

Around 3:40 p.m., Roope attempted to turn left onto Winkler Mill Road from Congo Road and collided with a 1992 Ford driven by Claude Daniel Hall II, 38, of Millers Creek, the trooper said. Hall was traveling north on Winkler Mill Road.

Damage to both vehicles was heavy, Oakes indicated on his report.

No charges were filed.
