LENAWEE COUNTY, MI (WTOL) - The Lenawee County Sheriff's Department says a woman died in a rollover crash on U.S. 223 Monday morning.

It happened just before 8:30 a.m. on U.S. 223 between County Line Road and Horton Road. Lenawee County Central dispatch says they received calls that a vehicle had rolled over into the ditch on U.S. 223 and that a female was trapped inside the vehicle.

When emergency medical units arrived they say they located the one occupant, 29-year-old Amanda Lowrie from Ida, Michigan, who was pronounced dead at the scene.

According to Sheriff's investigators the vehicle was traveling west bound on U.S. 223 when Lowrie was unable to stop for traffic that had slowed and stopped ahead of her, causing Lowrie to lose control and cross the center line.

The vehicle left the roadway, rolling over and coming to rest in the ditch on the south side of U.S. 223.

According to witnesses at the scene, Lowrie appeared to be involved in distracted driving prior to the crash. The driver was not wearing a seat belt.

U.S. 223 and State Route 23 were closed for a short amount of time.

Investigators do not know if Lowrie drowned in the water filled ditch or if she died of injuries in the crash.
