Slick roads may have played a role in a southwest Iowa crash Wednesday evening that killed one person and sent three others to the hospital. The Iowa State Patrol is investigating the Mills County crash which claimed the life of 62-year-old Randall Jones, of Henderson.
The accident happened on Highway 34, about two-miles east of Malvern, at around 5 p.m. Jones was driving a 2003 Buick LeSabre east on Highway 34, when his car collided near the centerline of the road with a westbound 1997 Ford pickup, driven by 40-year-old Agustin Argueta, of Omaha.
Argueta, and two passengers in his truck, 21-year old Hector Gimenez, and 28-year old Rubin Antonio Soza Alvarez, both of whom are from Omaha, were transported to Creighton University Medical Center. Arguetta and Gimenz was taken to the hospital by Malvern Rescue, while Alvarez was transported by Glenwood Rescue.
Gimenez was the only one of the accident victims who was not wearing a seatbelt.
