SAGINAW COUNTY, MI (WNEM) -

The Saginaw County Sheriff's Department said deputies and emergency personnel responded to a crash at Center and Swan Creek roads in Saginaw County.

When officers arrived to the scene around 9:20 a.m., they discovered that a single vehicle had gone off the road and into a ditch.

Saginaw County Sheriff's Deputy Lt. Randy Pfau said 74-year-old Doris Jean Smith was driving the vehicle when it left the road and crashed. Pfau said she was on her way to the doctor's office.

Investigators said they believe her death was caused by a preexisting medical condition. Authorities said they think that condition killed her before she sustained any injuries in the crash.
