A deadly car crash in Corning is under investigation after a woman lost control of her vehicle early this morning.

The California Higway Patrol says 58-year-old Catherine Shuman of Corning was driving her 1999 Ford Ranger pick-up truck northbound on Highway 99 west, just south of Gallagher Avenue.

Patrolmen said for unknown reasons, Shuman's truck drifted off the roadway just before 6:30 a.m. and that is when she overcorrected and lost control of the vehicle.

The truck hit a fence and small tree before coming to a stop inside someone's yard where she also hit several chicken coupes.

Shuman was pronounced dead at the scene.
