MOUNT VERNON, IA (WTAQ) - Authorities in eastern Iowa said an SUV driven by a Wisconsin woman caused a four-vehicle crash in a construction zone that killed two people.
Linn County sheriff's deputies said 33-year-old David Hultquist and 23-year-old Skyler Darrow, both of Martelle Iowa, died in Monday's crash on Highway 1 near Mount Vernon.
Investigators said the SUV, driven by a 44-year-old woman from Platteville, rear-ended a car stopped in the construction zone. That vehicle rear-ended a unit in front of it, and the third vehicle did the same to a fourth.
The Platteville woman and her two children were all sent to a hospital with injuries. Motorists in the front two units were not hurt.
