Traffic Unit Investigators have notified the family of a woman who died in a rollover crash in the 500 block of E. Cardinal Drive.

Officers identified the driver as 22-year-old Kori Michelle Simon formerly of Winnie.

Investigators have determined that at about 11:08 pm, Simon was driving a Toyota Corolla westbound on the highway when she left the roadway.  The vehicle then rolled over causing Simon to be ejected.  The vehicle came to a rest in the inside lane of the highway.  Simon died at the scene.  Traffic Investigators are still working to determine what caused Simon to leave the roadway.

Eastbound lanes of traffic were diverted at the Highland Avenue exit as that side of the highway was closed for about four hours due to the investigation.
