NEW CASTLE — Police said no injuries were reported when a woman’s car slid off Rural Avenue Thursday and went into a ditch.

The road was closed for about a half-hour while New Castle public works crews salted icy areas, according to city police.

Police said a Volkswagen sedan driven by Elizabeth Barter, 50, of Bradenton, Fla., hit an icy spot and slid around 1:50 p.m. Her car was towed.
