One person was killed, another injured during a crash Wednesday afternoon, in Mills County. The Iowa State Patrol says the driver of one of the vehicles, 71-year old William Kinard, of Red Oak, died in the crash. Officials say Kinard was traveling east on Highway 370 at around 2:20-p.m., when his 2007 Hyundai Accent crossed the center line of the road and collided with a 2010 Honda Element driven by 46-year old Luci Branyan, of Jefferson City, MO.

Brayon was injured in the crash and transported by Pacific Junction Rescue to Creighton University Hospital, in Omaha. Both drivers were wearing their seatbelts. The accident happened about a mile east of the Missouri River, just across from Bellevue, NE.
