Car accident takes the life of 1 in Iowa

A Belle Plaine's man has died in a two-car accident. The crash took place on Thursday, June 19, when two cars collided near Grinnell, Iowa. The Iowa State Patrol said that a man and his wife were traveling east on U.S. Highway 6 in their Saturn Ion. They were suddenly struck by a vehicle, which was being driven by a 54-year-old man from Montana. His Ford F-150 had crossed the center line and struck the pair's vehicle head-on.

During the accident, the Saturn was forced into a ditch that was on the south side of the roadway. The F-150 went into the same ditch further down the road. The driver of the truck also struck an electric pole.

The driver of the Saturn Ion, who was a 78-year-old man, and his 70-year-old wife, were both injured, but the man's injuries were fatal. Unfortunately, the 78-year-old man was pronounced dead when the paramedics arrived at the scene of the accident at around 4:20 p.m. The man's injured wife was taken to Grinnell Regional Medical Center for treatment.

The driver of the other vehicle was also taken to the hospital for treatment following the accident. Their conditions have not been released by police. The Iowa State Patrol has reported that it will be continuing to investigate the accident to determine why the truck driver crossed the center line.

Car accidents can result in serious injuries or deaths. Those who are faced with a family member's' fatality want to know the details of what took their loved one from them. If someone is at fault, they may have a right to seek compensation from the "at fault" party.
