The Morgan County coroner Jeff Chunn confirmed that Karen Jenkins of Moulton died on Friday. This follows the Decatur car wreck when a water main cover flew into her car.
This happened two Fridays ago, when Jenkins was driving on Wilson Street after work.
One vehicle was traveling on Wilson Street and hit the water main cover. This caused it to fly up in the air and fly through Jenkin's windshield. The cover weighed about 15 pounds. Jenkins was sent to the Huntsville Hospital where she eventually died.
Jenkins's funeral was held Tuesday afternoon in Trinity.
WAAY 31 is still waiting to hear back from city officials to learn if this was a city issue. Decatur Utilities said they'll complete their own investigation when the police department completes theirs.
