Woman found dead in wrecked car

MERIDIAN, Miss. (WTOK) - A crash that happened on Interstate-20 Tuesday proved to be fatal.

A Scott County woman was found dead Tuesday afternoon after a car ran off the road into a creek near mile marker 124. Her name was not immediately available to the media.

With all the heavy rain Tuesday, Coroner Clayton Cobler says the wreck was likely due to the car hydroplaning.

Authorities say they don't know if others were in the vehicle. The crash is still under investigation.
