The Iowa State Patrol says a Michigan woman died Thursday, after her car collided with a pickup truck on Interstate 29 in Pottawattamie County. The accident happened at around 2:40 p.m., west of Honey Creek.
The Patrol says 80-year-old Beatrice Delpy, of Fraser, Michigan, was traveling southbound on I-29, when for reasons unknown, she stopped on the traveled portion of the road. After her 1991 Cadillac Seville was rear-ended by a 2005 Ford F-650 truck, both vehicles came to rest in the west ditch.
Delpy was transported to Creighton University Hospital in Omaha, where she died from her injuries. A passenger in the car, 87-year old Bernard Delpy, also of Fraser, MI, was injured and taken to the same hospital. The Patrol says the couple had been wearing their seatbelts.
The driver of the pickup, 48-year old Frank Bernard, of Sioux Falls, South Dakota, was not injured.
