Authorities in southwest Iowa’s Fremont County say a Shenandoah woman was killed Thursday in a single-vehicle crash. Sixty-eight-year old Nancy Rae Whitehill was pronounced dead at the Shenandoah Memorial Hospital after the car she was driving went out of control on Highway 59 and rolled-over into a ditch, three-miles south of Shenandoah.
Sheriff’s officials say Whitehill’s car ran off the road, onto the shoulder, and back onto the roadway. When she overcorrected, her actions caused the vehicle to spin around before sliding into the ditch where it rolled onto its top, trapping the woman inside. The accident happened at around 4:15 P.M.
