A northwest Iowa woman and her newborn child have died after a single vehicle crash near Peterson early Tuesday evening.

The accident happened just before 6 p.m. on a county road three miles north of Peterson. According to the Clay County Sheriff’s Office, 29-year-old Courtney Engeltjes of Everly left the roadway, overcorrected and her S-U-V rolled over into a ditch. Engeltjes and her newborn daughter were both taken to Spencer Hospital. They were later air lifted to another hospital where they died from their injuries.
