Car Rollover Accident on Mayflower Road

A South Bend woman has a scary accident when her car rolls over into a ditch.

Police had to close parts of Mayflower because of the accident.

It happened just before seven Sunday evening.

A woman driving and talking on her cell phone says she lost control of her vehicle when she hit a patch of ice.

The car then rolled over, eventually landing in a ditch.

Officials say the road was covered with ice, and are urging all drivers to be careful. Chief Terry Korpal of the Portage Fire Department explains, “These wide open fields here. Snow blowing it. Just the people are putting salt on them. Not much you can do about it.”

The woman was sent to Memorial Hospital.

She is expected to make a full recovery.
