MONTOUR (KWWL) - Officials have released the name of a man who died in a Tama County crash Dec. 6, and said that the driver of the car also succumbed to his injuries.

Dalton Eugene Youngbear, 21, of Toledo, died at the scene of a one-vehicle crash on Dec. 6, according to the Iowa State Patrol report just released Wednesday.

The driver of the vehicle Youngbear was in -- Vernon Lasley, 21, of Tama -- was initially transported to Marshalltown Hospital by ambulance with unspecified injuries, and later died of those injuries, according to reports.

Officials say Lasley was driving eastbound on County Road E49 near Montour after 2 a.m. Friday morning when he failed to negotiate a curve, losing control of his vehicle and striking a tree.

Lasley had been wearing a seatbelt at the time. It was unclear whether Youngbear had been wearing one.
