Both drivers were seatbelted, but the driver of the Toyota became trapped and had to be mechanically removed. The victim died at the scene.

The Lauren’s County Coroner’s Office identified the victim as Aimi Pretty Perrett, 27, of Greenwood.

An autopsy is scheduled for Friday morning.

The driver of the Mercury SUV was transported to the hospital.
