NEW CASTLE, Ky. (AP) — A Kentucky State Police employee who had worked with the agency for 20 years has died in a single-car crash.

News outlets report 62-year-old Mary "Renee" McCoy lost control of her car Tuesday morning near New Castle and crashed into a tree.

McCoy was driving her personal car and was wearing a seat belt. She was pronounced dead at the scene.

Kentucky State Police say McCoy was hired as a telecommunicator in Nov. 1999. She was later certified as a driver's test administrator for Carroll, Gallatin, Henry, Oldham and Trimble counties.
