The crash occurred at 4:01 p.m.

Rippel was driving a 2001 Plymouth sedan owned by a Batavia resident.

There were no passengers and no other vehicles were involved in the crash.

No citations were issued.

I wouldn't be surprised if she hit one of the large holes where the road has been tore up. That road REALLY needs to be re-stoned or paved! The traffic on that road increases every year. I think it is time that they budget the paving of the road. Also, they should add some flood control while they are at it. That is most likely the reason for the road to be pulling up like it is. Some flood control to handle the water under the road and using pavement instead of stone and oil will surely make a world of difference... and probably save some money in the end. I take this road to work every day, and use it heavily on the weekend on my travels into town. I really wish they would do something about the road.
