State troopers have charged a man with DWI after a good Samaritan was killed trying to help a woman whose truck broke down in Burke County on Wednesday night.

 

Deputies said 42-year-old Lorrine Vaughn’s truck broke down on N.C. 18 South around 10:30 p.m.

 

Neighbors told Channel 9 the impact was so loud that they had to come out of their homes to see what had happened.
