The Wood County Sheriff's Office says a fatal accident happened just before 6 this evening in the 14400 block of Emerson Avenue.

They say a Toyota Corolla driven by Sharon Mortensen, 59, of Vienna collided head on with a Chevy Tracker driven by Codi Norman, 25, of Mineral Wells.

Mortensen died as a result of the crash.

The sheriff's office says she was a school teacher in Belmont.

Norman and his two passengers, Abby Little, 23, of Mineral Wells, and a three month old baby, were transported to the hospital.

The sheriff's office says the baby was treated and released; however, Little was transported to a Charleston hospital.

Norman's status is not known at this time.

The baby was secured in a car seat, but it is not clear at this time whether any of the others were wearing seat belts.

The sheriff's office continues to investigate the accident.

They're asking anyone who witnessed it to call them at (304) 424-1834.
