Icy Roads cause Rollover Crash

A woman is recovering after a sheet of ice caused a rollover crash west of Madras.
Yesterday morning, Jefferson County Sheriff's deputies responded to Belmont Lane about 3 miles west of Highway 97.   Officials say a  full-size truck was on its top. The driver had minor injuries and was not transported. Investigators say the road at the top of the hill was dry and the temps were below freezing. 
They say down the grade at the first corner the roadway developed a sheet of frost making the roadway very slick. As the truck navigated the corner it lost traction and the vehicle spun out and rolled over.
