Over the weekend, four fatalities took place due to traffic accidents throughout the state of Iowa.
An elderly couple in Boone were killed in a car accident on U.S. 30 when the driver of their vehicle, the couple’s 15-year-old grandson, came in contact with a limo on the highway. The 80-year-old man was ejected from the vehicle. Both him and his wife were pronounced dead at the scene. A person inside the limo was taken to a nearby hospital, and is currently in critical condition.
Two people lost their lives in separate single-vehicle accidents. In both of the accidents, the drivers lost control of their vehicles. The Iowa Department of Transportation revealed that, as of Friday, there have been 161 traffic fatalities in Iowa.
Our thoughts and condolences go out to the traffic accident victims’ families and friends.
On the westbound side of I-235, a driver operating a PT-Cruiser struck the side of a Nissan Maxima near exit 4 on the highway. The driver of the PT-Cruiser did not stop after the contact was made, and continued on the highway.
The Nissan Maxima then collided with a pickup truck in the middle of I-235. That crash caused two people to suffer minor injuries, and for the passenger of the pickup truck to need assistance exiting the vehicle.
The driver of the Maxima was determined to be driving under the influence of alcohol, and was taken into custody. Police are still searching for the initial vehicle that caused the three-way crash.
