A woman from Humboldt County died Monday as the result of a crash in southwest Iowa’s Cass County.
According to the Iowa State Patrol, a 2001 Lincoln L-S driven by 26-year-old Bryce Baker, of Atlantic, was traveling south on Olive Street at around 5:30 a-m., when for reasons unknown, the car crossed the centerline of the road and struck a northbound 2010 Chevy pickup, head-on, about two and one-half miles south of I-80, near Dallas Road.
A passenger in one of the vehicles, 29-year-old Griffin Ferguson, of Humboldt, died at the scene. She was not wearing a seat belt. Baker, and the driver of the pickup, 64-year-old Bernard Sullivan, of Atlantic, were injured and flown by helicopter to Mercy Hospital in Des Moines.
