Icy road conditions contributed to a traffic accident Monday afternoon on Braswell Lane.

Captain Steven Leffew of the Smithville Police Department told WJLE that a 17 year old Smithville girl was driving east in a 2010 Chevy Equinox when she apparently slid on an icy spot in the road while trying to negotiate a curve. Her car turned sideways in the street and into the path of a westbound 2007 Chevy Tahoe, driven by 58 year old Anthony Black of Smithville. Both vehicles went into a ditch after impact.

Members of the Smithville Volunteer Fire Department and DeKalb EMS came to the scene but there were no injuries.
