Canton Woman Dies After Crashing

Highway Patrol troopers say a Canton woman died after being involved in a traffic crash, but her death was not because of the crash. According to an online crash report, 80-year old Rose McCutchan of Canton was southbound at the intersection of 3rd and Clark street in Canton about 3:45pm yesterday when she suffered some sort of medical condition and crashed. Her nearly new Ford Escape left the road, striking a mailbox and a sign, then crossed the road and hit a building. In spite of all that, the SUV was only slightly damaged and McCutchan suffered no injuries in the crash. However, her medical condition proved fatal, as she was pronounced dead after being rushed to Blessing Hospital in Quincy by Lewis County EMS.
