Delaware County has recorded its first traffic fatality of 2016, after a Marion woman was fatally injured in a single-vehicle accident on Interstate 69. Police say 62-year-old Rebecca Scott was driving in the southbound lanes near the Grant-Delaware county line when her vehicle left the roadway, struck the wire retainer in the median, and spun back onto the interstate. She then drove on to a nearby rest stop, where she notified authorities. She was taken by ambulance to the hospital after complaining of pain. The coroner says her injuries included a ruptured spleen.
