Minnesotan Among Three Fatals in Iowa Traffic Wreck
NEW HAMPTON, Iowa (AP) — Authorities say three people in a car were killed when it collided with a semitrailer in northeast Iowa's Chickasaw County.
The accident was reported about 6:20 p.m. Tuesday, near New Hampton on U.S. Highway 63, about 50 miles south of Spring Valley, Minnesota.
The Iowa State Patrol says the driver of a westbound car didn't yield to cross traffic at a highway intersection, so the car was struck by the northbound truck.
The patrol says three people in the car died. They were identified as 24-year-old Latorris Duffie and 25-year-old Devin Gordin, of Waterloo; and 29-year-old Keith Demry, of Richfield, Minnesota. The driver and another passenger were hospitalized. The patrol says the truck driver was not injured.
