A woman died in a single vehicle crash.

Police are appealing for witnesses to the collision, which happened on the B5307 at Newton Arlosh yesterday.

A blue Toyota Yaris left the road and overturned in a ditch. The vehicle was found in the ditch at about 10.25am.

The sole occupant, 86-year-old Eileen Carruthers from the Port Carlisle area, was pronounced dead at the scene.

The crash is not believed to have involved any other vehicle, but officers want to speak to anybody who saw the car leave the road or who may have noticed the blue Toyota Yaris in the area at any point that morning.

Anyone with information is asked to call police on 101, referencing incident 81 of September 2019.
