    The Fayette County coroner says a Mulberry Grove woman died in a car accident early Thursday morning.

    Coroner Bruce Bowen says Sonia Doggett, 19, was driving northbound on County Road 400E, two miles south of Illinois Route 140 when she left the road at a high rate of speed on the east side. Her vehicle overturned several times.

    Two other passengers were in the vehicle at the time of the accident. They were taken to area hospitals for treatment. Their conditions have not been released.

    Doggett was pronounced dead at the scene. An autopsy was planned for Friday in Effingham, but results were not yet available.

    The accident remains under investigation.
