A minivan driven by Ciara Leeann Loux, 29 of Eagle Grove, was driving east and was turning to follow the highway north when the State Patrol says she drifted across the center line and hit the left rear corner of the southbound pickup truck driven by Ray Woodley, 49 of Rockwell, who was turning to follow the highway west.

Loux was pronounced dead at the scene. The State Patrol says Woodley was injured and was taken from the scene by private vehicle.
