An Omaha woman is dead after a weekend car accident in southwest Iowa. The Pottawattamie County Sheriff’s Department says 36-year-old Tamara Curtis died Sunday after being flown to the University of Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha. Curtis’ car had been hit broadside by a pickup at around 12:15 PM, near Treynor.
The driver of the pickup, 32-year-old Corey Hackett, of Oakland, was treated for his injuries at scene of the crash, which took place at the Y-shaped intersection of U.S. Highway 6 and 300th Street. Officials say Curtis’ car was traveling north on 300th Street, when it pulled out onto the highway from a stop sign at the intersection, and was struck by the pickup. The crash remains under investigation.
