(Gratis, OH)--Slick conditions are being cited as the primary factor in a crash that killed a West Alexandria woman Monday morning. "It's probably due to the slick conditions of the roadway," said Dean Miller with the Preble County Sheriff’s Department describing conditions on State Route 725 near Gratis. 51-year-old Tracey Pearson lost control coming down a hill. Her car was broadsided by an oncoming pickup. Pearson was pronounced dead at the scene. The three people in the truck were all treated for minor injuries.
