Authorities had speculated she may have suffered a medical condition prior to the crash. A preliminary autopsy by the Lucas County coroner’s office determined Powers had indeed suffered from a heart disease.

Witnesses said Powers’ vehicle slammed into the back of a stopped car before tearing across a parking lot and slamming into a large oak tree. The vehicle also caught on fire.

Powers was flown by medical helicopter to a Toledo hospital, but she died hours later from her injuries, officials said.
