A Nebraska woman was transported to the hospital in Harlan after the car she was driving went out of control and rolled into a ditch Thursday morning, about a mile west of the Walnut exit. The Iowa State Patrol says 54-year old Vickie Blaisdell, of McCook, NE, was traveling west on I-80 at around 11:35-a.m., when her 2006 Chevy Malibu skidded on the snow and ice and entered the north ditch, where it overturned and ended up on its roof.

Blaisdell was transported to the hospital by Walnut Rescue. Officials say she was wearing her seat belt, and the injuries appeared to have been minor.
