FLAT, Texas (KWTX) A Gatesville woman died Monday at mid-day after the car she was driving left the roadway and flipped end-over-end several times.

Lillie Upchurch, 43, died at about 12:40 p.m. Monday when she lost control of her vehicle along State Highway 931 where it careened into a roadside ditch and began to flip end-over-end several times, Coryell County Justice of the Peace Coy Latham said.

Latham pronounced Upchurch dead at the scene and ordered her body taken for autopsy, he said.

Latham said Upchurch, who was alone in her car, was on the way to Temple to do some shopping.

Arrangements for Upchurch still are pending.
