One person was killed and three others injured last night in a central Iowa traffic crash. The crash was reported around 6:40 p.m. at the intersection of two county roads between the towns of Cambridge and Maxwell. The Story County Sheriff’s office says a pickup driven by Jacob Thompson of Maxwell entered the intersection and struck another pickup driven by Jose Martinez-Alvarez of Marshalltown.
A passenger in the Martinez-Alvarez vehicle was ejected and pronounced dead at the scene. The victim’s name has not been released. Another passenger was not injured, while Martinez-Alvarez was transported to a hospital in Des Moines. Thompson and a passenger in his vehicle, Jebediah Gardner, were transported to a hospital in Ames.
