Indiana State Police have confirmed the death of a Goshen woman in a Thursday morning one vehicle wreck.

Police say 60-year-old Rebecca Easton lost control of her vehicle at U.S. 31 south of Sease Drive.

According to an ISP press release, the preliminary investigation conducted by Trooper Dustin Rutledge Easton was traveling southbound on U.S. 31 near Sease Drive when she lost control of her 2005 Chevrolet Equinox.

“Preliminary evidence indicates that Easton was traveling too fast for the slick road conditions and lost control of the Chevrolet,” stated information from the release.

The vehicle reportedly veered off the west side of the road and struck an earth embankment before rolling at least once, according to the release. The release also stated the vehicle was found resting on its top.

Easton was pronounced dead at the scene where she was also believed to not have been wearing a seat belt.

In addition to Rutledge, ISP Sergeant Rick Brown, Sergeant T.J. Zeiser and Trooper Adam Moor assisted at the crash scene along with officers from the Miami County Sheriff’s Department, Miami County Emergency Management Services, the Miami County Coroner’s Office, the Peru Fire Department and the Pipe Creek Fire Department.
