A southwest Iowa toddler died Monday night at a Des Moines hospital from injuries sustained in a two-vehicle crash near Creston. The Iowa State Patrol says three-year-old Jazmin Haley was a passenger in a car being driven by her mother, 19-year-old Cassie Pederson of Grant.
Pederson was driving westbound on a gravel road when she ran a stop sign at the intersection with Highway 25. Her car was hit in the passenger side by a southbound SUV driven by 41-year-old Margaret Carbis of Greenfield.
Pederson and Carbis were not injured. The crash happened just before noon. The child was airlifted to Iowa Methodist Medical Center in Des Moines, where she died Monday night.
