A 54-year-old Fruithurst woman died after being thrown from her SUV in a single-vehicle crash in Heflin on Wednesday.

Deborah Ann Breeden was pronounced dead at the scene by Cleburne County Coroner Brian McKnight about 10:15 a.m., McKnight said.

She died of injuries sustained in the accident, McKnight said.

Heflin police Chief A.J. Benefield said Breeden was driving a green 2003 Chevrolet Trailblazer on U.S. 78 near Heritage Baptist Church when she left the roadway and lost control of the vehicle. The SUV rolled over and she was thrown out, Benefield said. It didn’t appear that she was wearing a seatbelt, Benefield said. Breeden was the only person in the SUV, Benefield said.
