A woman was killed after a single-vehicle rollover crash on South Summerville Road Wednesday afternoon around 1:50, according to a release.

The Rock County Sheriff’s Department responded to a report of a rollover crash on South Summerville Road near the overpass for Interstate 43 in the town of Clinton, according to the release.

The investigation indicated a 2006 Kia Optima, driven by Sokhon Pek, 46, of Janesville, was traveling southbound on South Summerville Road south of the Interstate 43 overpass when she lost control of the vehicle, according to the release.
