An Ardmore woman has been identified as the lone victim in a fatal wreck Friday evening in Madison County.

Senior Trooper Brandon Bailey of the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency said 79-year-old Gertrude E. Sloan was fatally injured in a two-vehicle accident around 6:15 p.m. She was the passenger in a 2015 Honda Accord that was struck by a 2012 Nissan Maxima at the intersection of Wall Triana Highway and Pulaski Pike, about 5 miles northwest of Toney, Bailey said.

“The driver of the Honda … was injured and transported to a nearby hospital for treatment,” Bailey said. “Sloan succumbed to her injuries en route to the hospital.”

Troopers continue to investigate the cause of the accident.
