The Iowa State Patrol is investigating a crash Wednesday evening which claimed the life of a southwest Iowa man, in Mills County. Authorities say 62-year old Randall Jones, of Henderson, died at the scene of the crash on Highway 34, about two-miles east of Malvern, at around 5-p.m., Wednesday.  Jones was driving a 2003 Buick LeSabre east on Highway 34, when his car collided near the centerline of the road with a westbound 1997 Ford pickup, driven by 40-year old Agustin Argueta, of Omaha.

Argueta, and two passengers in his truck, 21-year old Hector Gimenez, and 28-year old Rubin Antonio Soza Alvarez, both of whom are from Omaha, were transported to Creighton University Medical Center. Argueta and Gimenz were taken to the hospital by Malvern Rescue, while Alvarez was transported by Glenwood Rescue. Gimenez was the only one of the accident victims who was not wearing a seatbelt.
