Imogene was the 9-year-old daughter of Wade Hampton Burns and Mause Berry. She and several family members were standing around a fish pond at their home when a car ran off the road near Houk's Chapel, Catawba County, N.C. and turned over, striking several people and overturning. Her 2 1/2 year old nephew Jimmie was killed instantly. Imogene died of chest injuries on the way to the hospital. Her father suffered minor injuries and a family friend suffered a broken leg.

The driver was charged with manslaughter and reckless driving.
