Hamilton County Sheriff's investigators continue to look at an early Sunday morning wreck that killed a Baylor student.

Shipley Buckner died as a result of a crash at the 9600 block of Hixson Pike at 12:53 a.m. Sunday, according to sheriff's spokeswoman Janice Atkinson.

The incident was a single-vehicle crash, she said, with "preliminary information showing that the driver of the 2002 GMC Denali lost control in the curve, hitting the guardrail and then a tree."

The Denali struck the tree on the passenger side, she said.

The driver, Courtney Rhodes, 18, was transported to Erlanger hospital for injuries following the accident.

Ms. Rhodes' name is no longer listed with hospital information, according to an Erlanger spokeswoman.
