A 70-year-old woman died of injuries sustained in a wreck last week in Cobb County, authorities said today.
Cobb and Powder Springs police continue to investigate the Friday crash that killed Elaine C. Foust. The incident happened around 3:15 p.m. on New Macland Road north of Macedonia Road in Powder Springs, the news release said.
According to the preliminary investigation, Foust, of Powder Springs, was driving a black 1999 Dodge Neon northbound on New Macland Road when the driver of a gold 2001 Toyota Camry failed to yield while exiting a private driveway. Foust struck the Toyota on the left side, authorities said.

Foust was transported to Wellstar Kennestone Hospital, where she later died.
