By the time the rescue personnel arrived on the scene of the crash, Miller has succumbed to her injuries. Officials from Macon County Coroner’s Office pronounced the victim dead at the site of the crash.

In the wake of the crash, Macon County Sheriff’s Office, Macon County Coroner’s Office and others responded to the incident. Traffic in the westbound lanes of the I-72 also remained closed for nearly half an hour following the crash.
Adverse road conditions on the I-72 were responsible for several incidents over the weekend. Many vehicles slid off the roadway after the drivers lost control. However, no other crashes were reported.
