Jones County sheriffs deputies are investigating a fatal crash with a Chevrolet equinox SUV in the 2600 block of Graham Road Wednesday, February 14, 2018.

A Jones County woman was killed Wednesday on Graham Road.

Jennifer Land, 39, was driving a 2015 Chevrolet Equinox SUV from Gray toward Macon when she approached a curve, crossed the center line and went off the left side of the road around 9 a.m., Jones County sheriff's investigator Kenny Allen said.

"She left the roadway for whatever reason, making contact with a couple of utility poles before continuing on and hitting the oak tree," Allen said.

There were no skid marks on the pavement.

Jones County sheriff's deputies are trying to determine what caused the crash.

Land, who lived not far from the crash site, was not wearing a seat belt and died at the scene.

Emergency vehicles blocked the road for about 90 minutes before the scene was clear.
