Faribault Woman Dies In Iowa 26 Jul 13

A southern Minnesota woman has died in a crash caused by a wrong-way driver in northeast Iowa. 51-year-old Tracy Willis of Faribault died in the collision on Highway 218 north of Janesville Wednesday afternoon. Dispatchers had already received a call of a northbound truck in the southbound lanes of the highway, but before officers could catch up to it the truck hit Willis’ car head-on. The truck driver, 58-year-old Verle Wygle, of Waterloo was hospitalized. Three other cars were damaged in the accident as well, and the investigation is continuing.
