Cause of
death uncertain
in accident

A Moundridge woman found dead at 5:35 p.m. July 18 at an accident scene on K-15 just south of 140th Rd. will be autopsied before determining whether the accident or a medical condition caused her death.

According to the highway patrol, Martha Jean Biggs, 73, Moundridge, was northbound when her 2008 Chevrolet HHR drifted across the left lane and went into a ditch, striking a culvert, and overturning before coming to rest on its tires.

She was not wearing a seat belt.

It is not known when the accident happened.

“We will rely on the autopsy to determine what caused the death,” Trooper Ben Gardner said. “Autopsies are almost always done in this type of case.”

Gardner said he did not know when the autopsy would be completed.
