COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -  A Cataula woman is dead after officials say she hit a telephone pole in Columbus.

Fifty-seven-year-old Patricia Paul was killed Monday night after her car left the road, hit a mailbox and then a utility pole near the intersection of Pinebrook Drive and Reese Road.

Paul was pronounced dead at the Medical Center at 6:34 PM.

Muscogee County Deputy Coroner Freeman Worley says an autopsy is pending because witnesses say they saw Paul slumped over in her car before the crash.
