NEMOURS (WVVA) - Ice may have played a factor in an accident that claimed the life of a woman on Falls Mills Road in Nemours.

The crash occurred Tuesday at approximately 11:18 a.m. and involved a dark-colored Ford Explorer. State Police say an adult female died at the scene.

She was the only occupant of the vehicle.

According to Trooper J.L. Morris, the vehicle was traveling east on Route 102 toward Bluefield when the vehicle lost control in a turn, skidded off the roadway striking a tree roof-first, then went over an embankment, ultimately coming to rest in a yard.

Based on the preliminary investigation, police say icy road conditions may have played a factor in the crash.

The victim has not been identified pending notification of family.
