KILLEEN, Texas (KWTX) - Police identified Amanda Elizabeth Love, 41, as the woman who died after she was thrown out of a car during a rollover Monday morning.

The accident happened at about 10:15 a.m. in the 200 block of W. Stan Schlueter Loop. When the officers arrived, they found Love lying along the shoulder of the roadway.

She was immediately airlifted to Baylor Scott & White in critical condition. Love succumbed to her injuries and was pronounced dead at the hospital by the Justice of Peace Cliff Coleman.
