Woman Killed in Iowa Truck Accident
A woman was killed in an Iowa truck accident early Sunday.
According to a statement from the Iowa State Patrol, 24 year-old West Des Moines-resident Riki Lee Ogden was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash, which occurred on Interstate 80 about two miles south of Adair. Investigators determined that Ogden was traveling west on Interstate 80 in a 2008 Jeep Patriot truck shortly after 5:00 a.m. when the accident happened. Troopers say her vehicle crossed the median, rolled over, and came to rest on its wheels.
According to the accident report, Ogden was ejected through the sunroof of the truck. She was found in the roadway by response crews.
It is unclear at this time what caused Ogden to lose control of her vehicle, police said. The accident remains under investigation by the Iowa State Patrol.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the victim’s family and friends.
