MOULTON, Ala. (AP) — An Alabama woman has died after her vehicle struck a cow.

Alabama state troopers told local news outlets that 51-year-old Kimberly Adams Hood of Moulton was killed Monday when her car struck a cow around 10:35 p.m. and overturned.

She was not wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash, some 8 miles (13 kilometers) west of Moulton. She was pronounced dead at the Lawrence County Medical Center.

Lawrence County coroner Greg Randolph says a passenger in Hood's car sustained minor injuries from the crash.

Hood was the former executive director of the Lawrence County Chamber of Commerce.

Troopers continue to investigate.
