Columbia County sheriff's deputies responded to reports of a single-vehicle crash just east of Highway H on Highway 33, according to a release.
Investigators said the passenger car was traveling west on Highway 33 when it entered the south ditch, continued traveling west on a gravel farm drive and then crashed into a tree.
