Search Continues For Hit & Run Driver

Cleveland County law enforcement and the NC Highway Patrol are still looking for a vehicle that fled the scene of a fatal accident Friday (June 12th).

28-year-old Stacey Ball of Kings Mountain was driving west on NC150 toward Shelby about 7:30 Friday evening when a car believed to be a 2010 Honda Civic attempted to pass her in a no passing zone. When faced with oncoming traffic, the other driver swerved right, forcing Ball's Nissan car off the road and into a tree. The car then caught fire. Ball was killed, her 15-year-old niece was airlifted to Atrium Health's Carolinas Medical Center in Charlotte, and her infant child suffered a broken leg.

Home security footage from a nearby home showed the suspect vehicle fleeing the scene continuing toward Shelby. Troopers believe it to be a silver Honda Civic, possibly a 2010 model, with a sunroof and alloy wheels. The vehicle suffered damage to the right rear quarter-panel and possibly red paint transfer from Ball's car. The Highway Patrol says it was occupied by two males.

Area repair shops have been notified to be on the lookout for a vehicle matching that description, and anyone with more information should contact the Highway Patrol.

A graveside service for Ball will be held Wednesday (June 17th) at 2 PM at the Mountain Rest Cemetery, 111 S. Dilling Street in Kings Mountain. Visitation will be from 12:30 - 1:30 PM at the Harris Funeral Home, 108 S. Piedmont Ave. in Kings Mountain.
