One person was killed in a fatal accident on Finchville Road early Monday morning.

Shelby County Coroner Jeff Ivers said that the single vehicle accident occurred when Bryan Nilson lost control of his vehicle on the 2600 Block due to icy road conditions.

"The vehicle slid on the ice and overturned," he said.

Nilson, 64, was alone in the vehicle as he was traveling to work in Simpsonville, said Ivers.

He added that police worked serveral weather-related auto accidents Sunday night and Monday morning, but the Finchville Road accident was the only serious one.
