A 53-year-old Minto woman died after her car crashed into a ditch along Highway 10 on Thursday.

A member of the RCMP's Oromocto detachment came upon the scene at about 10:30 a.m. in Noonan.

The car had left the road and was in a ditch. The woman was the only person in the car.

The victim's name has not been released because her family has not been properly notified, according to the RCMP.

A traffic reconstruction expert was called in to help the investigation, along with the provincial coroner service.

Police say an autopsy will be done.

The police investigation is continuing.
