A woman trying to drive her car up a steep road lost control of her vehicle and ran over and killed a nun who was directing traffic below, authorities said. The car Frances Wager was driving was having trouble going forward, California Highway Patrol Sgt. Tim Santillan said. It rolled down the hill and struck the nun, whose identity was not released pending notification of her family. No one else was injured in the accident, which occurred around 11 a.m. Thursday, Santillan said.
