According to the Iowa State Patrol, 17-year old Samantha Renea Long, of Creston, was driving a 2003 Chevy Trailblazer northbound on York Avenue at around 10:30-p.m., when she lost control of the SUV at 330th Street. The vehicle entered a farm field and rolled multiple times.
Long, who was not wearing a seat belt, was ejected from the SUV as it rolled. She was transported by a family member to the hospital in Creston, where she died.
