A Mills County man died in a weather-related crash early Friday morning, in Pottawattamie County. According to the Iowa State Patrol, 56-year old Duane Allen, of Glenwood, died when the 2006 Chevy Colorado pickup he was driving went out of control, entered the median and struck an unoccupied  2009 Jeep Compass that was stuck in the median as a result of Thursday’s blizzard, and had not been towed. The Patrol says Allen was not wearing a seat belt. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

The accident happened at around 5:20-a.m. on Interstate 80 eastbound, about 6-miles southwest of Underwood.
