BOISE – If you are heading down to Reno for the Boise State-Nevada game this weekend, the Oregon State Police has a traffic warning for you.

Icy roads appears to have been a factor in a deadly crash on Highway 95 Wednesday evening.

OSP Lt. Mark Duncan says around 10:50 p.m., 56-year-old Debby Lee Raymond of Sacramento, Calif., was southbound on Highway 95 near milepost 58, about eight miles east of Burns Junction, when she lost control of her 1996 Dodge Ram pickup. The truck traveled across the northbound lanes and onto the shoulder, where it rolled on its top. She was wearing a seatbelt, but died at the scene.

The cause of the crash remains under investigation.

Police are urging football fans and travelers to use extra caution on the highway. OSP and Malheur County deputies plan to increase enforcement in that area Friday through Sunday.
