Video

Body

Thirty-year-old Amy Kornegay, better known as Suzanne, was returning from her nightly walk Monday night. She was only a few hundred yards from home when she was struck and killed by a pick-up truck.

Pender County Highway Patrol has charged seventy-one-year old Amon Hall with felony hit-and-run and a misdemeanor for failing to file an accident report after the accident.

Highway patrol said Hall hit Kornegay then drove off, but later returned to the scene.

Volunteer firefighter Jamie Kornegay, the victim’s husband, was one of the first to respond.

Neighbors say something needs to change along Camp Kirkwood Road. “It doesn’t surprise me that it did happen, especially right there,” said Susan Lloyd, a Watha resident. “It was 6 o’clock at night, so it was almost dark and they were coming around that curve. We need to make it less than 55 all the way out to 117.”

Kornegay was a substitute teacher at Penderlea School and a clerk at Knowles Accounting in Wallace.

The family will hold funeral services tomorrow at Padgett Funeral Home in Wallace.

Kornegay is survived by her husband and two sons, 11-year-old Brodie and 6-year-old Colby.

The family has started a memorial fund. For more information contact the Bank of America in Wallace.
