A rollover accident south of Stanton Sunday morning was blamed on icy road conditions. The Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office says a vehicle driven by 70-year-old Carolyn Houston, of Stanton, was south bound on O Ave, just south of 250th St. at around 10-a.m., when the vehicle hit a patch of ice and left the road before sliding into the west ditch. In the ditch, the vehicle came into contact with the embankment of a driveway, causing it to go airborne before landing and rolling over onto the driver’s side. Houston, who was trapped in her vehicle, was extricated by the Stanton Fire Department, using with the “Jaws of Life.” She was transported by Stanton Rescue to the Montgomery County Memorial Hospital, for treatment of minor injuries.

No citations were issued.
