A 66-year-old woman died after her car veered into a ditch early Saturday morning in Annapolis County, N.S.

The crash happened on Ben Phinney Road near Forest Glade at around 1:50 a.m. The victim, who was from Margaretsville, was the only person in the car.

Police said the overnight storm may have been a factor since driving conditions were poor.

The car was extensively damaged. Kingston and Margaretsville firefighters used the Jaws of Life to extract her body from the wreckage. An autopsy will be performed at Soldiers' Memorial Hospital.

Police haven’t released the victim's name.
