Bus crash kills 1 woman


LINN COUNTY (KWWL) - An accident killed one woman Tuesday afternoon. It happened on Highway 151 just south of Springville.

The Iowa State Patrol says a school bus was near a farm drive, with flashers on, unloading kids around 3:30 p.m. Lynn Mota, 39, of Cedar Rapids, rear ended the bus with her minivan. Mota died from her injuries.

Just minutes later and not far from that crash, a pickup ran into a light post at considerable speed. It happened at the intersection of Highways 100 and 13. Our reporter at the scene did see the driver of the truck being fitted with a neck brace, while still in the vehicle.

No word yet on the cause or extent of the injuries.
