An elderly Anderson County resident died Thursday in a single-vehicle crash.

Shortly after 8 p.m., Emilie Fay Pipkin, 71, of Tennessee Colony was traveling west on FM-321, when she lost control of her 2009 Lincoln Town Car.

The vehicle left the roadway, struck a tree, and rolled over into a shallow pond.

Pipkin, who was unrestrained, was pronounced dead on-scene by Judge James Westley. Her remains were transported to Herrington Funeral Home in Palestine.

State Department of Public Safety officials say the crash remains under investigation.
