JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Wednesday morning the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office released the name of a 22-year-old woman killed in a crash on Girvin Road early Monday morning.
The crash happened a little before 5:30 Monday morning in the 1200 block of Girvin Road, according to a news release from Shannon Hartley, Public Information Officer for the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office.
Hartley said Katherine Hopwood was traveling south on Girvin Road when for an unknown reason her car drifted off the west side of the road.
Hopwood over-corrected, Hartley said, which caused the vehicle to leave the east side of Girvin Road. When the car left the roadway, it hit a tree on the passenger's side door.
Emergency personnel pronounced Hopwood dead at the scene.
Hartley said the investigation into the crash is ongoing.
