A Shelbyville woman was killed early Sunday in a single-vehicle crash on Knob Creek Road east of Wartrace.
Lori J. Lovvorn, 35, died at the scene, investigators said.
"She was traveling on Knob Creek Road towards Shelbyville and lost control, going off an embankment to the left and crossing back across the road into the right hand side into some trees," a report filed by State Trooper Dallas Rife said.
Lovvorn's seat belt was not in use and would have made a difference, Rife's report said.
She is Bedford County's first traffic fatality of 2013.
