BIRMINGHAM, Alabama — Authorities say a woman is dead after single-vehicle crash in the Birmingham area.
The Jefferson County Sheriff's Office says the crash happened early Saturday shortly after midnight on a road in the northern part of the county. A 51-year-old woman from McCalla was driving alone when she lost control of her vehicle, which left the road and struck an embankment before flipping onto its roof.
Sherriff's officials say the woman was pronounced dead at the scene. Her name was not immediately released as authorities worked to notify the woman's family.
