Woman Suffers Heart-Attack, Dies While Driving

Posted: Updated:

Two women driving near Chadron Wednesday were involved in an accident after the driver suffered from a fatal attack.

Authorities say Donna "Peggy" Tausan, brought the car to a safe stop east of Chadron on Highway 20 after Joyce Dryer, 77, lost control of the car as she suffered what Dawes County Attorney Vance Haug called, "a sudden cardiac-related" event.

Dryer lost control of her car, and it ran into a roadside ditch. Tausan, reached over, grabbed the steering wheel, returned the car to the roadway and brought it to a stop.
