TYLER, Texas (KTAL/KMSS)- Troopers responded to a fatal car crash Wednesday at 6:38 p.m. on US-69, approximately 4.1 miles north of the city of Rusk in Cherokee County. 

Preliminary crash reports indicate that the driver of a 2001 Toyota Sequoia, Rachael Paralee Finley, 38, of Rusk was traveling north on US-69 when for a yet to be determined reason, drove off the roadway to the east and then over-corrected to the left which caused the vehicle to enter a side skid back to the left and began to roll several times, crossing CR-1505 before coming to rest. 

Finely was pronounced at the scene by Judge Brenda Dominy and transported to Autry Funeral Home in Jacksonville.  The crash remains under investigation.
