Icy roads blamed for Sunman woman's death

Lois Kimball, 64 of Sunman, lost her life after she lost control on an icy roadway last week.

Dearborn County authorities say Kimball was on State Road 46 West of State Road 1, when she hit an icy patch in the roadway and lost control of the GMC Envoy she was driving. The SUV went off the roadway and overturned on its top.

Kimball was taken to Margaret Mary Community Hospital, Batesville, where she died.

Authorities say the roads became very slick as a small storm moved through the area.

Local police caution motorists to slow down in inclement weather condition, and better yet, if you don't have to go out, stay home.
