LELAND (AP) — Authorities say an 88-year-old woman died after her car collided in northern Iowa with a pickup truck driven by one of her grandchildren.
The Iowa State Patrol says Shirley Schutter’s car was struck Monday afternoon at an intersection in Leland after she’d halted for a stop sign. A patrol report says she pulled into the path of the pickup driven by 27-year-old Ethan Schutter, of Lake Mills. The patrol says Shirley Schutter died at the scene. She lived in Forest City.
Patrol Sgt. Nathan Ludwig confirmed Thursday that Ethan Schutter is one of Shirley Schutter’s grandchildren. Ludwig also says Ethan Schutter wasn’t injured enough to require hospital treatment.
