A southwest Iowa woman died in a single-vehicle accident Sunday afternoon. The Iowa State Patrol says 33-year-old Miki Lynn Bailey, of Council Bluffs, was trapped in her SUV and had to be extricated by fire and rescue personnel following the accident which occurred at around 2:10 P.M. Bailey’s 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee was traveling north on I-29, when a non-contact vehicle slowed for a slow moving vehicle in the right hand lane.
When Bailey swerved to avoid a collision, the Jeep went out of control and entered the median, before rolling over. Bailey, who was not wearing a seat belt, was flown from the scene by helicopter to an Omaha hospital, where she died from her injuries. The accident remains under investigation.
