A 41-year-old Council Bluffs woman died after a traffic accident Tuesday night with a semitrailer truck on Interstate 80 in western Iowa.
The Iowa State Patrol said Heather Ann Roberts was taken to a Des Moines Hospital and later died after the 10:30 p.m. accident on I-80 in northwest Adair County.
The patrol said Roberts was westbound on I-80 in a 2006 Chevrolet Colorado pickup truck when she lost control, crossed the median and was struck broadside by a 2006 Volvo semi driven by Michael Cole, 49, of Oswego, Ill.
Both vehicles ended up in the eastbound I-80 ditch, the patrol said.
