STEUBEN COUNTY, Ind. (WOWO): Monday’s snowfall led to a number of area crashes, including a fatal one in Steuben County.

The Steuben County Sheriff’s Office tells WOWO News they were called to 750 North Road, east of 700 East, a few minutes past 8am. There they found 40-year-old Christine Treat of Fremont dead inside her vehicle. It appears she lost control on the snow-covered roadway, went off the road and hit two trees.
