A collision between a semi and a car this (Monday) morning in Crawford County has claimed the life of a Schleswig woman. The Iowa State Patrol says 61-year old Margaret Rebecca Irvine, who was wearing a seatbelt, died at the scene of the crash on Highway 59, about 3-miles north of Denison. Officials say a 2004 International was traveling south on Highway 59 at around 8:35-a.m., when a northbound 1993 Oldsmobile driven by Irvine went out of control on the slick road surface, and crossed the center line. The vehicle was then struck broadside by the truck.

The driver of the truck, 51-year old David Charles Joslin, of Galva, was not injured in the crash.
