A woman has died after an accident underground at a limestone mine in northern Kentucky.

The Gallatin County sheriff’s office says 37-year-old Angela Common of Carrollton was pronounced dead just after 4 p.m. Tuesday.

The sheriff’s office said in a statement that she was driving a large dump truck inside the Sterling Materials mine when the truck turned over. The statement said the woman was ejected when she hit a rock wall and was run over by the truck’s rear wheel.

The sheriff’s office says operations at that mine shaft were suspended temporarily while the incident is investigated.
