LEE COUNTY, Miss. (WTVA) -- A Mantachie woman has died after a one-vehicle crash Friday evening near the Lee/Itawamba County line.

Trooper Ray Hall said the accident occurred at approximately 6 p.m. on Highway 178 west of Mooreville.

Hall said Priscilla M. Steele, 38, was traveling east on the highway when she apparently lost control of the vehicle, ran off the road and struck several trees.

Steele was transported to North Mississippi Medical Center in Tupelo and later died from injuries sustained in the crash, according to Hall.

One lane of the highway was blocked for a short time while emergency officials worked the scene.

The accident remains under investigation.
