Investigators say a driver lost control on a curved section of Highway 16 near Wiggins Road in Tlell.

The vehicle left the road and sheared off a utility pole.

Despite the efforts of emergency crews and passers by, the female driver later succumbed to her injuries in hospital.

Police say the road was wet at the time of the crash, but investigators believe speed appears to be the main factor.

The name and age of the driver has not been released.
