Stewart overcorrected, causing her vehicle to re-enter the roadway rotating, before going into the eastbound lane and overturning, Wright said. Alcohol was not involved and no one else was in the vehicle, he added.

Funeral will be 2 p.m. Sunday in the chapel of Parrott Funeral Home with Brother Joe Honeycutt officiating. Interment will follow at Holly Hill Memorial Park.

The family will receive friends today from 5 - 8 p.m. at Parrott Funeral Home in Fairburn.
