A crash in eastern Iowa this (Wednesday) morning, resulted the death of one person and injuries to four juveniles. The accident happened on County Road V-44 southeast of Keystone in Benton County, at around 7:37-a.m. The Iowa State Patrol says a northbound 2004 Dodge Caravan dropped off the shoulder of a county road numerous times prior to the driver over-correcting and causing the vehicle to cross into the path of a southbound 2019 Bluebird Bus, which struck the van on the driver’s side. The accident happened about one-half mile north of Highway 30.

The driver of the van died at the scene. The bus driver was not hurt, but the juveniles on the bus suffered minor injuries. No names have been released at this time.
