SAN TAN VALLEY, AZ (CBS5) -

A San Tan Valley woman has died of injuries she suffered in a one-car crash Dec. 3.

Krystal Nance, 28, a married mother of five, died Saturday evening from the suffered when the 1998 Buick Skylark  she was driving rolled on North Ironwood Road in San Tan Valley about 5:40 p.m., said Tim Gaffney of the Pinal County Sheriff's Office.

Several passers-by reported the crash to the PCSO and Nance was found by medical personnel with severe head trauma, unconscious but breathing.

Investigators said it appeared the car drifted off the left side of the road, the driver overcorrected and lost control, Gaffney said.

He said the car went into a spin and rolled down a dirt embankment, ejecting Nance from the vehicle. She was not wearing a seat belt, Gaffney said.

He said neither speed nor impairment appeared to be factors, and that the investigation was continuing.

She was flown to Scottsdale Healthcare-Osborn Hospital, where she died at 5:45 p.m. Saturday.

PCSO Traffic Deputies in the Vehicular Crimes Unit who investigated this case will adopt the family for Christmas and will be taking the children shopping for gifts in conjunction with the PCSO's Sheriff's Santa Program, Gaffney said.
