A 52-year-old woman was killed early Sunday when her car went off a road in Cockeysville, hit a tree and overturned, according to Baltimore County police.

The victim, Myung Kim, of Parkville, was pronounced dead on the scene of the accident, which occurred about 12:40 a.m. in the 13700 block of Cuba Road. The crash site is at the intersection of Shawan Road, west of I-83 and near Oregon Ridge Park.

Baltimore County Police Sgt. Bruce Aris said Kim was driving a 2003 Toyota Avalon and was the lone occupant. He said investigators did not yet know why the driver apparently lost control of the car. The sergeant said it does not appear that alcohol was a factor.
