LAKE COUNTY, Ind. (Jan. 8, 2014)– A vehicle going too fast for slippery road conditions lost control and flipped over a retaining wall and onto its roof Wednesday morning.

Just after 10:00 a.m., a 2000 Mercury Grand Marquis driven by Shelby Street, 56, of Portage, Indiana had just gotten off the I-65 south bound to I-80 east bound ramp and was merging onto east bound I-80 into the right lane when she lost control on the icy roads.

The Mercury went off the road to the right and flipped over the retaining wall landing on its roof.

Street who was wearing her seat belt had to be extricated from her car. She was taken to Saint Mary’s Medical Center in Hobart with non-life threatening injuries to her face.

The Mercury was a total loss.
