By Mark Carlson, Reporter
IOWA CITY, Iowa - A morning rollover crash tied up traffic on eastbound Interstate 80 near the Iowa-Poweshiek County line for more than two hours Monday morning. A witness said a van rolled into the south ditch and another vehicle may have been involved. Iowa State troopers spent about two hours taking measurements, at times closing both lanes of eastbound traffic.
According to the Iowa State Patrol, one person was killed and three others were injured. All victims were in the same car and were from Milroy, Pennsylvania. 18 year old Morgan Aumiller somehow lost control of the vehicle. The vehicle rolled several times and came to rest in the south ditch. Roberta Ross, 66, was pronounced dead at the scene. A 43 year old man was taken to the hospital by a helicopter.
The accident remains under investigation.
