ST. LOUIS – A Kirkwood woman died in a single-car crash Wednesday night. The Missouri State Highway Patrol (MSHP) says 49-year-old Martha Wainwright died.

The crash happened at approximately 9:04 p.m. on West Adams Avenue just east of Ballas.

Officials say she was driving a 2021 Ford Mustang when she tried to pass another vehicle on a curve. The MSHP says Wainwright swerved to avoid an oncoming vehicle and lost control of the car and hit a tree.

The crash report says the car then returned to the road and flipped, throwing her from the car.

No other injuries were reported.
