August 10th, 2011 by Ric Hanson

Funeral services will be held Saturday morning in Griswold, for a rural Cumberland woman who died Tuesday in a single-vehicle rollover accident just west of Griswold. Pottawattamie County Chief Deputy Sheriff Jim Matthei identified the victim of the crash as 21-year old Kayleen Amos.


Matthei says the woman was traveling north on Contrail Avenue at around 6-a.m., when she lost control of the 2002 Ford F-250 pickup she was driving just north of Highway 92. The vehicle entered the west ditch and rolled over, coming to rest in a corn field. Amos, who was wearing a seatbelt, was pronounced dead at the scene.

The accident remains under investigation. Amos was born in Atlantic, and had attended school in Griswold. She was working for her family’s business, “Amos Family Produce,” when the crash occurred.
