An Omaha woman is dead after a weekend car accident in southwest Iowa. The Pottawattamie County Sheriff’s Department says 36-year-old Tamara Curtis died Sunday after being flown to the University of Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha.
Curtis’ car had been hit broadside by a pickup at around 12:15 PM, near Treynor. The driver of the pickup — 32-year-old Corey Hackett, of Oakland — was treated for his injuries at scene of the crash, which took place at the Y-shaped intersection of U.S. Highway 6 and 300th Street.
Officials say Curtis’ car was traveling north on 300th Street, when it pulled out onto the highway from a stop sign at the intersection, and was struck by the pickup. The crash remains under investigation.
