The truck entered a ditch and struck an embankment before flipping or rolling numerous times and coming to rest on the driver’s side.
Rescue personnel from Fontanelle and the Adair County Ambulance responded to the scene. Scott was extricated from the vehicle and flown by air ambulance to Mercy Hospital in Des Moines, where she later died.
