The Gibson County Sheriff’s Department says an Evansville woman is dead following a rollover accident Sunday night on US 41 near Fort Branch.

A SUV rolled down an embankment and a back seat passenger was critically injured when she was thrown from the vehicle.

22-year-old Meghan Elpers of Evansville later died at Saint Mary’s Medical Center in Evansville.

The driver, 23-year-old Katelyn Niemeier of Evansville, suffered a fractured wrist.

Two other Evansville women, 23-year-old Carolyn Niemeier and 22-year-old Page Lincoln, were not injured.

Police do not believe alcohol was a factor in the accident.
