2 dead in fatal crash in Ogle County (Updated)

Ogle County sheriff's police continue to investigate a single vehicle crash Sunday afternoon that claimed the lives of a Stillman Valley couple.

Pronounced dead at the scene were 63-year old Arthur Nelson along with his wife, 62-year old Teresa Nelson.

The accident took place near the intersection of Route 72 and Rothwell Road a short time after 2:30 Sunday afternoon as the car left the pavement and traveled 115 feet in the ditch before striking a tree. Arthur Nelson was driving the vehicle west bound on Route 72.

Ogle County Sheriff Michael Harn said that Route 72 was icy at the time of the accident. It is still undetermined if the inclement weather was a factor in the crash.

Nelson may have had a medical problem prior to the accident. An autopsy is scheduled for today in Oregon.
