Iowa man killed, three injured in single-vehicle crash
A 23-year-old Mount Pleasant driver crashed into a tree around 11 p.m. last Friday night on 520 Avenue in rural Crawford County, according to police.
The accident occurred about 200 feet west of 250th street. The driver and his three passengers were headed eastbound on 520 Avenue when he lost control of the car where the road surface changed from asphalt to gravel. Police believe that the man was driving was a high rate of speed, which may have been the cause behind this car accident.
The 2001 Chevrolet Camaro veered off the road and slammed into a tree, ejecting the driver through the windshield. Emergency personnel pronounced him dead at the scene. His passengers were transported to Via Christi and St. John’s Regional Medical Center for head injury treatment.
