An autopsy has been ordered for a Hearne woman killed in a single-vehicle rollover.

JoAnn Workmon-Ephraim, 61, died shortly after 8 p.m. Tuesday after losing control of her Ford Expedition on Highway 6 in Bryan. Authorities say the SUV rolled several times before coming to rest in the median.

Ephraim was not wearing a seatbelt.

As a result of the wreck, a section of Highway 6 will be temporarily shut down tomorrow from 9 a.m. - 1 p.m. for accident reconstruction.

The closures will affect traffic in both directions south of the Woodville overpass.

Vistitation will be held at Glenn Mack Funeral Home on Friday, March 13th.

Ephraim's funeral has been scheduled for 11 a.m. on Saturday, March 14th in Hearne, at St. Emanuel Missionary Baptist Church.
