A 59-year-old woman died Wednesday night following a single-vehicle crash in DeRidder, authorities said.

DeRidder Deputy Chief Christopher Rudy said the accident occurred around 6:50 p.m. near the intersection of Blankenship Drive and Dees Street.

"The driver left the roadway, over corrected and lost control," Rudy said Thursday in a news release. "The vehicle struck a tree. The driver, who was lone in the vehicle, was not wearing a seat belt and had to be extracted."

The identity of the driver is not being released pending notification of next of kin.
