ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Police say one person has died in a crash in southeast Dougherty County.

It happened around 4:30 p.m. Monday on Gravel Hill Road in front of Rocky Hill Missionary Baptist Church. According to officials on the scene, 37 year-old Charity Howell died in the crash. They say she apparently lost control of the car she was driving and hit a culvert, flipping and throwing her out of it.

Dougherty County Police, firefighters, and the Coroner were dispatched to the scene.

Officers said speed was a factor in the crash and she was not wearing a seatbelt.

NOTE: Officers at the scene initially reported incorrectly that the crash had happened on South County Line Road, but it was actually on Gravel Hill Road.
