Correctional Officer Shannon Smith was struck and killed by a car while supervising a work crew on U.S. 70. The driver of the vehicle lost control while talking on a cellular phone, over-corrected back onto the roadway, and struck Officer Smith. The suspect was charged with a misdemeanor death by vehicle and reckless driving, and fined $2000.

Officer Smith had served with the North Carolina Division of Prisons for four years. She is survived by her husband, daughter, parents, and sister.

The North Carolina Department of Transportation named a bridge on US 70, in Johnston County, the Shannon Smith Bridge in honor of Officer Smith.
