WALWORTH COUNTY-- The Walworth County Sheriff's Department is investigating a fatal crash that happened Saturday night.

Authorities were called out around 8:00 p.m. to County Trunk Highway M just south of Richmond-Darien Townline Road.

A 1992 Chevy Blazer was traveling south of Highway M when it crossed the centerline, left the roadway, and hit a tree.

48-year-old Lisa Martin of Milton, WI was the driver and sole occupant of the car.

She had sustained critical injuries from the crash.

Flight for life was called out and she was removed from the vehicle.

However, she succumbed to her injuries and was not flown out.

She was pronounced dead by the Walworth County Coroner.

An autopsy will be performed this week to determine the exact cause of death.
