The driver of a pickup truck that rolled east of Nevis on frosty roads Tuesday morning was not seriously injured, authorities said.

The female driver, identified as 26-year-old Cassie Leigh Novak of Akeley, was traveling too fast on an icy curve when she lost control of her Ford Ranger Supercab pickup and rolled it in the south ditch of Hubbard County 33, east of the intersection of County 13, Dep. Jeff Stacey indicated in his report.

Emergency crews called for a highway sanding crew and urged motorists to slow down. The accident occurred around 10 a.m.

Frosted roadways throughout the region have led to numerous accidents in the past two weeks, including at least three rollovers.

"People just gotta slow down," said another officer at the scene of this latest crash.

The Ford was extensively damaged.
