Two die in accident near Monticello

Two adults were killed and three children are among the injured after a pickup truck crash last night in eastern Iowa. The Jones County Sheriff’s office says it was a single-vehicle rollover accident on Highway 151 near Monticello about 8:30 P.M.

The driver was pronounced dead at the scene while a female passenger died after being taken to Jones Regional Medical Center in Anamosa. Four other passengers were also taken to the hospital and one of them was later airlifted to University Hospitals in Iowa City.

The driver was a 58-year-old Missouri man who was taking a family to a wedding in Wisconsin. No names have been released.
