A southwestern Iowa woman was killed last night when her pickup went out of control on Interstate 80 and was hit by a semi.
Iowa State Patrol says say 41-year old Heather Ann Roberts, of Council Bluffs died at a hospital in Des Moines following the crash on I-80 in Adair County.
Roberts was traveling west on the interstate at around 10:30 p.m., when her full-sized Chevy pickup went out of control. The pickup crossed the median and entered the eastbound lanes of traffic, where it was hit on the passenger side by a 2006 Volvo semi.
Both vehicles then came to rest in the east ditch off of eastbound I-80. The driver of the semi, 49-year old Michael P. Cole, of Oswego, Illinois, was not injured.
