Officials said that the woman was driving northbound on Route 47 when she left the roadway and struck a stoplight pole and electrical box on the northwest side of the intersection.

Alcohol is believed to be a factor in the crash, Woodstock Police Deputy Chief Jeffrey Parsons said.

Police continue to investigate the crash and are unable to release any further information. Authorities have not said if any arrests have been made yet or if any citations have been issued.
