MHP investigating single-car, fatal crash near Townsend

The state Highway Patrol is investigating a deadly crash on U-S Highway 12, seven miles north of Townsend.

Troopers were called to the scene late Friday night and found the one car involved in the crash.  Investigators say 53-year-old Marguerita Huertas drifted off the side of the road and overcorrected, partially rolling the vehicle. She was not wearing a seatbelt and was ejected from the car in the crash.

No other cars were involved and no one else was hurt.
