Fatal Wreck in Cowarts

A Houston County woman was killed in a one-vehicle wreck.

The crash happened just before noon Monday near the intersection of Glen Lawrence Road and Omussee Road in Cowarts.

State troopers say a car driven by 19-year-old Candace Lee Barnes ran off the road and overturned in a ditch. The young woman was partially ejected and the car landed on top of her.

Candace Barnes was the only occupant of the vehicle.

She died a couple of hours later at a Dothan hospital.

Alabama State Troopers are still trying to determine what caused the woman to lose control of her car.
