An ECU student has been cited for texting and driving after her car overturned in a canal in Greenville.
The incident happened shortly after 9 a.m. near the intersection of Stantonsburg Rd. and Westpointe Drive.
The driver, Carmen Freeman, a 2nd year ECU student, says she climbed out through the rear-door window of her Nissan Sentra. Freeman, age 19, told WNCT-TV she over-corrected and veered off into the canal.
Troopers say she admitted she was texting and driving.
