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.
