A woman is dead after a rollover accident south of the city Wednesday morning.

The crash happened around 4:30 a.m. on Highway 281 South, just south of Loop 410.

Officials say the woman picked up her boyfriend from work and they were heading home. The man was driving when he apparently lost control and the car flipped.

The woman was thrown from the car, and the man managed to get out himself. When first responders arrived, the car was on fire.

The woman was pronounced dead and the man suffered some injuries, possibly a concussion.

The northbound lanes of Highway 281 had to be shut down for a few hours while officials investigated the crash.
