A Janesville woman was killed Wednesday when the car in which she was a passenger left a gravel road in the town of Clinton and rolled several times.

Loeun Oeun, 45, was pronounced dead at the scene on South Summerville Road, near the Interstate 43 overpass, according to a news release from the Rock County Sheriff’s Office. Deputies responded to the scene at 1:53 p.m.

Their investigation indicates that Sokhon Pek, 46, Janesville, was driving a 2006 Kia Optima southbound when she lost control of the vehicle, which then crossed the road, entered the east ditch, rolled over multiple times and came to rest on its roof.

Sokhon Pek and a front seat passenger, Pea Pek, 38, Janesville, were wearing their seatbelts and were taken to Mercy Hospital and Trauma Center with non-life threatening injuries. Deputies said Oeun was not wearing her seatbelt.

Fire/EMS personnel from Clinton and Beloit also responded along with a UW Med-Flight helicopter and a first response medical doctor from Mercy.

Troopers from the Wisconsin State Patrol responded to reconstruct the crash, which remains under investigation.

No citations or charges have been filed. South Summerville Road was opened after nearly 3 hours of investigation.
