A Fort Rucker woman died after the car she was driving left the road, traveled across a field and into a pond on U.S. Highway 84 West.

Lauren Hancock Moore, 25, was the victim in the late model Acura when it was pulled from the unnamed pond, an Alabama Law Enforcement Agency spokesman said. The vehicle was pulled from the pond Friday morning, but details of the accident, including the time it happened, have not be released.

Area law enforcement and first responders pulled the vehicle from a pond on U.S. Highway 84 West near Holland Road. The pond is between Wicksburg and the Bay Springs community.

Reports from the scene indicate that someone walking near the pond early Friday morning noticed a set of tire tracks heading into the water and called emergency personnel.

In addition to the tire tracks, witnesses said a portion of the fence around the field had been knocked down and some debris, including a bumper, could be seen in the field heading toward the pond.

ALEA said its investigation is continuing.
