A Mulberry Grove woman died in a car crash early Thursday morning in Fayette County.
Fayette County Coroner Bruce Bowen said 19-year-old Sonia Doggett was northbound on a county road two miles south of Illinois 140 at the time of the crash. Bowen said Doggett's vehicle left the roadway at a high rate of speed and overturned several times.
Doggett's car was carrying two passengers; both were injured and were taken for treatment.
Bowen pronounced Doggett dead at the scene at 5:17am.
The crash remains under investigation by the Fayette County Coroner's Office and Illinois State Police. Bowen scheduled an autopsy for today in Effingham to determine the cause of death.
