A 23-year-old Chattooga County woman died in a single vehicle crash on East Armuchee Road in Walker County.

The Georgia State Patrol believes Jessica "Jessie" Tudor crashed somewhere between 5-5:30 a.m. while heading north. About a mile into Walker County, Tudor left the roadway, struck a culvert and flipped multiple times.

"It was in a straightaway," said State Patrolman J. Ballard First Class 2, of the Walker County Post.

A passerby spotted the vehicle sitting near the roadside around 6:20 a.m. and reported the accident. Trooper Ballard said although Tudor's silver 2008 Toyota FJ Cruiser was just off the roadway, it was still dark.

"And a lot of people are not traveling through there at that time of day," Trooper Ballard said.

Tudor's vehicle traveled about 410-feet from the point it left the roadway until it struck a utility pole with the top of the roof. The trooper said Tudor was not wearing a seatbelt.
