Police-lights-300x192Two lives were lost in an accident in southeast Iowa about 12:40 this morning.

A pickup truck was southbound on Highway 149 in Ottumwa when it crossed an intersection and lost control. The Iowa State Patrol says the pickup entered the ditch catapulting over a small road before rolling several times and coming to a rest on it’s top.

Twenty-one-year-old Tyler Weston and 20-year-old Justice Nord, both from Ottumwa,  were ejected during the accident and died from their injuries. The Iowa State Patrol says neither were wearing their seat belts.
