GASTON COUNTY, NC (WBTV) -

The Gastonia Police Department Traffic Enforcement Bureau is investigating after a woman was found dead inside a wrecked vehicle.

According to police, someone walking along the 2400 block of Bessemer City Road spotted a 1991 Acura Integra that was down an embankment.

Officers responded to the scene, and found 31-year-old Jennifer Hanes Huffman deceased inside the vehicle. Officials said it appeared the vehicle had been there for some time before being found.

It appears, investigators told WBTV, that the Huffman was traveling south on Bessemer City Road just south of Oates Road when she crossed over the northbound lanes and went through a parking lot before ending up down the embankment.

Officials are asking any witnesses that may have seen the wreck or that last saw Huffman to contact Officer Quinn at (704)843-5168.
