Woman dies in one car accident

JACKSON, MS (WLBT) - A fatal accident on I-20 claims the life of a 58-year-old woman.

It is unclear what caused the wreck.

Traffic was slowed along east and westbound lanes of I-20 at the Gallatin Street exit for more than two hours as Jackson Police and fire departments worked to reach the Chevy Impala.

Just after 6 p.m. Sunday night the vehicle lost control and landed in the median.

Hinds County Coroner Sharon Grisham Stewart says it appeared the female driver suffered blunt force trauma to the head.

"Identity is not being released at this time pending notification of her family. Currently I can not tell you what the cause of death is. She is scheduled for an autopsy. We will rule out medical verses accidental circumstances," Grisham Stewart said.

No other vehicles were involved in the wreck.
