A Benton woman was killed in a one car accident Wednesday morning on Old Benton Road.
Leslie Parshan Monday, 59, of 394 Mollett Road, died after her car left the road and landed upside down in an overgrown area.
Investigators reported Monday was driving west when her car crossed the oncoming lane, drove up onto an embankment and rolled serveral times. The vehicle severed a power pole cable before landing about 75 feet from where it left the road.
Yazoo County Coroner Ricky Shivers said Monday was wearing her seatbelt. She was pronounced dead at the scene.
Shivers said a medical condition may have contributed to the crash.
