A Jasper woman was killed in a two-vehicle accident on Tuesday afternoon in Daviess County on US 231 just south of SR 58 near Farlen.

A Daviess County Sheriff Department report says that 61 year old Margaret Clark of Jasper was driving a 2006 Chrysler minivan southbound on 231 following a 2005 Ford Explorer driven by 17 year old Cameron Chestnut of Odon, when he lost control of his vehicle on the snow and slush covered road and it began to spin around.

Clark’s car struck the passenger side of the Chestnut vehicle and the impact caused severe damage to both vehicles.

Clark was pronounced dead at the scene by Daviess County Coroner.  Chestnut was taken to Daviess Community Hospital for treatment.
