A local woman was killed in a perplexing single-vehicle accident in Chattooga County.

According to Weis News Radio, investigators are unsure why 51-year-old Elizabeth Venita Stephens of Dalton lost control of her car on Gore-Subligna Friday afternoon. Her 1999 GMC Sierra drove off the roadway and struck a culvert in a ditch.

Officials say she was not wearing her seatbelt, and likely died on impact with her steering wheel.
