Officials with the Iowa State Patrol on Friday morning said two passengers in a car that crashed into the trailer of a semi Wednesday evening on eastbound Interstate 80 west of Adair died at a hospital in Des Moines.
They were identified as 85-year-old Harold Willey and 68-year-old Faye Frolic, both of Rock Springs, Wyoming. The car, a 2013 Toyota Camry, rear-ended a semi that was disabled on the roadway due to an accident that had occurred a few minutes earlier. The vehicle came to rest partially under the trailer of the semi.
The driver of car, 68-year-old Pamela Willey, also of Rock Springs, was injured in the crash and flown to a hospital in Des Moines. The driver of the semi was not injured. The patrol says none of the crash victims were wearing a seat belt.
