JONES COUNTY — First responders received a call of a rollover northwest of Anamosa around 8 p.m. Monday.

Law enforcement and medical personnel responded to the intersection of Fremont Road and Ridge Road E28 northwest of Anamosa.

The driver was pronounced dead at the scene, according to a release from the Jones County Sheriff’s Office. A passenger in the front seat was taken to Jones Regional Medical Center in Anamosa before Air Care transported the victim to the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics. A passenger in the back seat was taken to St. Luke’s Hospital in Cedar Rapids.

The names of all three involved are being withheld until family members can be notified of what happened.
