Police car lightsA Grafton woman is dead after a crash north of Plymouth last night.

The Iowa State Patrol says 68-year-old Jeannette Robinson died as a result of the crash that happened on Thrush Avenue also known as County Road S-56, south of 350th Street at about 5:20 PM.

The State Patrol’s crash report says Robinson was heading northbound and attempted to pass another northbound vehicle, but pulled into the path of a southbound vehicle.

Robinson swerved to avoid hitting the southbound vehicle and went into the west ditch, hitting a field approach. That caused her car to go airborne, landing on the passenger side.

The accident remains under investigation.
