The Nacogdoches County Sheriff's Office is investigating what appears to be an accidental death in the county.
Sheriff Jason Bridges said his deputies were dispatched to an address along U.S. 59 Tuesday afternoon when an elderly woman was found deceased at a residence.
The woman, whom Bridges said was 66 years old, apparently injured herself while stepping from the residence to a set of stairs near the house, and apparently suffered a "bad break" in one of her legs when she fell.
The woman's name was not immediately available.
Bridges said an autopsy had been ordered.
