A single-vehicle accident in the town of Waldo has claimed the life of a woman from Brooks.

The Waldo County Sheriff's Office says emergency personnel were called to the Waldo Station Road just after midnight on December 24th. When they arrived, they found a Toyota 4Runner that had left the roadway and struck a tree.

The driver of the vehicle, 27-year-old Sarah Leclerc of Brooks was transported to the Waldo County General Hospital, where she was pronounced deceased by the medical staff soon after her arrival. Officials say the crash is still under investigation but black ice was likely a factor. Leclerc was not wearing a seat belt.
