The Iowa State Patrol has released the names of those involved in crash on U.S. 30 in Benton County Monday morning.

78-year-old Delores Pickering of Newhall died from injuries suffered in the crash at 30th Avenue and U.S. 30 around 8:45 a.m.

63-year-old Charles Ancelet and 63-year-old Regina Ancelet, both of Norway, were injured and taken to an area hospital.

Troopers said the Ancelets were northbound on 30th Avenue and failed to yield when entering U.S. 30. Their Chevy Avalanche collided with an eastbound Chevy Equinox Pickering was driving.

The patrol said all three people were wearing seatbelts and the time of the crash.

Investigators said fog may have played a role in the crash, which remains under investigation.
