An 83-year-old Lincoln man was killed and a female passenger was seriously injured Wednesday in a three-car crash on Interstate 80 near Iowa City, Iowa.
Jimmie E. Danielson was pronounced dead at the scene, according to the Iowa State Patrol. Rose Hitz, 82, of Lincoln, was taken by ambulance to the University of Iowa Health Center.
Investigators determined that Danielson was driving a 1969 MG convertible west just before noon when it collided with two other vehicles. The convertible flipped, landing on its top and coming to a rest in the median.
The convertible hit a 2017 Dodge pickup truck driven by Steven Jebsen, 66, of Delmar, Iowa, and a 2016 Tesla driven by Christian Orness, 21, whose address was not listed. Those vehicles also came to a rest in the median. Their occupants were not injured.
Investigators said Danielson and Hitz were wearing seat belts. The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
