Iowa car accident kills elderly couple
An elderly couple in State Center, Iowa died as a result of their injuries they sustained from a car accident. The accident took place on a Wednesday afternoon when the couple was driving into town. The injuries from the accident sent the couple to the emergency room.
The couple, both in their 90’s, had been married for 72 years. They were practically inseparable throughout their lives and being in the emergency room didn’t change that. Both of them were more concerned about one another than they were about themselves. Their injuries were too severe and the couple passed away holding hands.
The love this couple showed was exemplary and they leave behind children, 14 grandchildren, 29 great-grandchildren and 1 great- great grandchild.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends of the victims during this hard time.
