The Iowa State Patrol says 23-year-old Scharell Shavers was passing a semi when she came upon a disabled car in the roadway. Shavers tried to try to avoid a collision but lost control on some ice and collided with the semi.
Shavers’ car and the truck both went into a ditch, and she died at the scene. The truck driver was not hurt. Troopers say Shavers was not wearing a seatbelt.
