A Doddridge County woman has died after an accident in Ritchie County over the weekend.

Amber McClain, 37, was apparently driving on Old Route 50, near River Road, at around 6:45 Sunday night, when she lost control. Her car went across the road, down an embankment, and ended up hitting a tree.

McClain wasn't wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash. She was partially ejected from the car and pronounced dead on the scene.

The Ritchie County Sheriff's Office is handling the investigation.
