A 49-year-old Montpelier woman was killed about 10:30 last night in a one-car accident in rural Muscatine County. The Iowa State Patrol identified the victim as Rhonda R. Levsen.

Reportedly, Levsen was driving her 2005 Chevrolet northbound on Zachary Avenue when she apparently failed to stop at the intersection at 171st Street. The car crossed the roadway where it entered the north ditch and came to rest. Levsen was taken to a nearby hospital where she was pronounced dead on arrival. The accident remains under investigation by the State Patrol.
