BERRIEN COUNTY, GA (WALB) -

State troopers are investigating the cause of a south Georgia woman's death after a single car crash.

Monday afternoon, 81-year-old Dolores Lyon ran off Nashville-Enigma Highway in Berrien County.

The car struck two signs, went though a yard, and ended up in a ditch.

Officials say Lyon had a history of medical issues and may have died before the crash.

"At this point it is unclear if the occupant of the vehicle died as a result of the crash or possibly an existing medical condition," said Sgt. Jeromy Roberts.
