According to Alabama state troopers, Kimberly Adams Hood of Moulton was killed Monday night at approximately 10:35 p.m. when her car hit the animal and her vehicle overturned. She was not wearing a seat belt.

Hood was the former executive director of the Lawrence County Chamber of Commerce.

“Kim was very personable and had a good sense of humor,” Jason Houston, the current executive director of the Chamber, said. “She was very outgoing. I’ve said she was uniquely suited to be in a public position like this. It gave her the opportunity to get out and meet folks, which you do an awful lot of in this job.”
