An 82-year-old woman died in a single-vehicle crash Sunday afternoon in southeast Iowa’s Fremont County. Officials identified the victim of the accident east of Randolph as Donna Jean Pierce of Malvern.
An investigation determined Pierce’s vehicle was traveling north on 330th Avenue when it left the road and entered the west ditch, before crashing through a set of closed gates and coming to rest in a creek. Pierce was not wearing a seat belt. Her body was sent to the State Medical Examiner’s Office in Ankeny for an autopsy.
