The Vanderburgh County Coroner's Office and the Vanderburgh County Sheriff’s Office are investigating a traffic accident from December 23.

As a result of the accident one woman has died from her injuries.

The crash happened at the intersection of Volkman Road and Barton Road in Vanderburgh County.

The coroner's office confirms, the driver of a 2004 Buick was identified as Dee Ann M. Patterson, age 50, of Poseyville.
