Police have released the identity of the victim from this morning’s wreck. Sylvia Norris, 70, of Decatur was killed Saturday morning in a wreck on County Road 4227 just south of U.S. 81/287 a couple of miles south of Decatur. Department of Public Safety Cpl. Jeff Johnson said Norris was northbound on the county road around 9:45 when she ran off the west side of the road, overcorrected, went into a sideskid, left the east side of the roadway and rolled her SUV at least two or three times. Norris was ejected. Precinct 1 Justice of the Peace Jan Morrow pronounced Norris dead at the scene. A nearby resident said Norris was going “extremely fast” as she passed by the house just moments before the crash. Johnson said it is obvious Norris was traveling at an unsafe speed. Other than that, the investigation would continue into the cause of the wreck.
