A single-vehicle accident that took place sometime between 10-p.m. Wednesday and 8-a.m. today (Thursday), in Shelby County, claimed the life of a woman from Carroll County. The Iowa State Patrol says a 2002 Ford F-150 pickup driven by 32-year old Amber Sauvago, of Breda, was traveling west on Highway 37, when it struck a bridge. The pickup then entered the north ditch, where it struck a tree before coming to rest on the northeast side of the intersection with County Road F-16.

Sauvago, who was wearing her seat belt, died at the scene. The State Patrol was assisted by deputies with the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office and crews with Dunlap Rescue.
