EDNA — A Coffeyville woman died Saturday in a one-vehicle accident in Labette County.

The accident happened at 5:30 p.m. Saturday on U.S. 166 six miles east of Coffeyville.

A pickup driven by Charlotte A. Wheeler, 68, was westbound on the highway at a high speed when it dropped off the left shoulder. Wheeler overcorrected, which caused the truck to enter the south ditch and roll several times. Wheeler was not wearing a seat belt and was ejected. The pickup ended up on its roof against a fence.

Wheeler was pronounced dead at the scene.
