A woman lost her life Tuesday afternoon when her vehicle slid off an icy road in Senoia, according to authorities.

Yvonne C. Nash, 60, was driving southbound on Highway 85 near the intersection of Seavy Street when her vehicle lost control and ran off the road, according to Gordy Wright, public information officer with the Georgia State Patrol. Emergency personnel responded to find Nash’s vehicle upside down in a ditch.

Emergency responders were able to pull Nash from the vehicle, and she was transported to Piedmont Fayette Hospital where she later succumbed to her injuries, according to Wright.
