One person was killed during a two-vehicle crash Wednesday night in western Iowa’s Crawford County. The Iowa State Patrol says 57-year old Thomas Eldon Foreman of Manilla died when the 1989 Buick he was driving collided with a pickup truck near Vail.
Officials say the accident happened when Foreman’s car met a pickup driven by 31-year old James Patrick Lally of Vail on the crest of a hill. The vehicles collided head-on, just before 10 p.m. on 350th Street, a little over a mile north of Highway 141. Foreman was taken to St. Luke’s Hospital in Sioux City, where he died. Lally was injured during the crash and taken to the Crawford County Hospital.
The Patrol says Lally was suspected of being under the influence of alcohol. The accident remains under investigation.
