HINDS COUNTY, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

A one car accident claimed the life of a Bolton woman over the weekend.

Hinds County Sheriff Victor Mason announced Sunday that a single vehicle accident,  on McGuffee Road near Jimmy Williams Road claimed the life of 59-year-old Majorie Washington.

Mason said investigators and emergency responders were on site reconstructing the accident Sunday afternoon.

It appears the driver lost control of her 2006 Nissan Altima while traveling north on McGuffee Road.

The vehicle left the roadway and crashed into nearby trees.

Officials say Washington was not wearing a seat belt and was ejected.

Hinds County Coroner Sharon Grisham-Stewart pronounced the woman dead at the scene.

Officials say alcohol did not appear to be a factor; however, the coroner will order an autopsy.

"It saddens me when a life is taken in a tragic accident like this,” Mason said.
