Woman dies in traffic crash on icy roads in Missouri

ROCHEPORT, Mo. (AP) — A 35-year-old Boonville woman died Wednesday when she lost control of her car on an icy bridge on Interstate 70 near Rocheport, the Missouri State Highway Patrol said.

The patrol said Chantel Winfield's vehicle went off the highway, hit a barrier and returned to the road. Winfield tried to get out of her car as it was still moving when it was hit by a tractor-trailer and went off the other side of the road. The vehicle hit another barrier and she was ejected, the patrol said.

Her body was found on land below the bridge.

The crash closed westbound Interstate 70 in the area for several hours.
