A second person has died from injuries sustained in a wreck last week in Elkmont, according to the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency.

Sr. Trooper Brandon Bailey said 67-year-old Kirby Toney Watkins of Elkmont was a passenger in the vehicle. Watkins had been transported to a nearby hospital for treatment after the wreck and died Tuesday from her injuries.

Authorities believe alcohol was a contributing factor in the crash, which occurred around 6:45 p.m. Feb. 2 on Sandlin Road near the intersection of Fain Road. ALEA reported Kimberly Michelle Carter, 52, of Elkmont was driving the 2002 Chevrolet Silverado when it left the roadway, struck a ditch and overturned.

Carter was ejected from the vehicle and pronounced dead at the scene.

Troopers with ALEA's Highway Patrol Division continue to investigate the incident.
