Road conditions blamed in fatal accident

MACOMB, Ill. -- Slick roads due to ice and snow played a part in a one-vehicle crash that killed a 23-year-old Keithsburg, Ill., woman Tuesday morning, the Illinois State Police said.  

Officials said Amber M. Henshaw was driving a 2007 Chevrolet Malibu east on U.S. Highway 34, about 1 1/2 miles east of 140th Street -- Cameron Street -- in Warren County at 8:03 a.m.  

Henshaw, state police said, lost control of her car due to ice and snow on the road, sliding across the eastbound lanes of traffic.  

The Malibu went into the grass median, striking the grass ditch before overturning.  

She was pronounced dead at the scene.
