Toxicology reports show alcohol was not involved in the death of a Butler County Woman.

Police say 23-year-old Shannon Tarrence was traveling West on Kentucky 626 in Butler County on March 26th, when her vehicle dropped off the shoulder of the road.

Police say Tarrence over-corrected, crossing both lanes of traffic, hit a concrete road tile, and flipped.

She was thrown from the vehicle and transported to the Medical Center in Bowling Green where she died.

Police say Tarrence was not wearing a seat belt.

Originally KSP listed alcohol as a contributing factor, but toxicology reports just released came back negative.
