Police and emergency responders were called to the scene in the 4800 block of Whaleyville Boulevard at 10:32 a.m. and arrived four minutes later to find a 2008 Honda Civic that had run off the road and hit a tree head on, according to Suffolk spokeswoman Diana Klink.

A 25-year-old woman was the only occupant of the vehicle, Klink stated in a press release.
