An Indianapolis woman was killed Saturday in a one-vehicle accident on I-65 in Jasper County, the Indiana State Police said.

The victim was identified as Joyce McQuiller, 42.

According to police, at 6:15 p.m. McQuiller as northbound on I-65 at the 226 mile marker, four miles south of the Demotte exit, when for unknown reasons she lost control of her 2001 Ford Explorer. Police said that McQuiller over-corrected the Explorer, which then rolled onto its driver’s side, skidded a short distance, left the roadway, and rolled several times before coming to rest on the driver’s side in a ditch.

McQuiller—who was wearing her seat belt—had to be extricated from her vehicle and was pronounced dead at the scene, police said.

The northbound lanes of I-65 remained open during the investigation and cleanup, police added.
