Woman dies after crashing into a tree

MAYNARDVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- A 42 year-old Maynardville woman was killed late Wednesday evening after her car went off the road and slammed into a tree, according to the Tennessee Highway Patrol.

Reports indicate Sonya Wolfenbarger was heading west on Hickory Star Rd., near Maynardville shortly before 8:00 p.m. when her 2000 VW Jettta crossed over into the oncoming lane and off the road, hitting the tree.

THP investigators are still trying to determine the cause of the crash and believe drugs may have been involved.
