ROSINTON, Alabama — A 45-year-old Spanish Fort woman was killed Saturday evening in a single-vehicle rollover accident on Interstate 10 in eastern Baldwin County, Alabama State Troopers said.

Two children, a 13-year-old girl and a 4-year-old boy, were injured, spokesman Trooper Greg Eubanks said.

The woman was identified as Angela Stephens. Eubanks said she was pronounced dead at the scene.

Olivia Stephens and Alex Stephens, also of Spanish Fort, were airlifted from the scene to Sacred Heart Medical Center in Pensacola, Eubanks said.

The accident took place about 5:30 p.m. east of the Wilcox Road exit in eastern Baldwin County, about 10 miles west of the Florida state line.

According to Eubanks, Stephens was westbound on I-10 in a 2002 Chevrolet Tahoe when the SUV left the road and went into the median, where it overturned several times.

Eubanks said Stephens, who was not wearing a seat belt, was ejected from the SUV as it rolled, and the vehicle came to rest in the eastbound lanes.

The children were not thrown from the vehicle during the wreck, Eubanks said. A nursing spokesman at Sacred Heart said both children were released from the hospital Sunday.
