Shelbyville - An 18-year-old woman was killed in a single-car crash in Shelby County Friday evening.

Shelby County Sheriff's Department deputies responded to a 911 call about the crash around 6 p.m. Friday. The caller said the driver, identified Saturday as Sarah Cathrine Church of Morristown, was unresponsive and trapped in the car near the intersection of CR 600 North and Morristown Road.

Investigators determined Church was southbound on Morristown Road when her vehicle left the roadway. She overcorrected twice and struck a large tree off the side of the road. The impact was on the driver's side door, causing "severe structural damage" to the vehicle.

Medics attempted to revive Church after she was extricated from the vehicle. She was airlifted to Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis, where she was pronounced dead. Police say she was wearing her seat belt at the time of the crash and the vehicle's airbags deployed.

A toxicology test on the victim is pending.
