A Valley Falls woman has died after a crash Saturday after driving her car off a bridge.

The Shawnee County Sheriff’s Office responded to the call at about 4:55 Saturday afternoon. A deputy found a car underneath the bridge on NE Calhoun Bluff Road in northeast Shawnee County.

The driver was identified as Margaret Huertz, 77, of Valley Falls. Deputies say she drifted off the north side of the road and crossed both lanes of traffic before hitting a guard rail. Her car then rolled into the creek.

Heuertz was taken to a Topeka hospital where she died Monday from her injuries.

The Shawnee County Sheriff’s Office says they are investigating if a medical issue led to the crash.
