FLOYD COUNTY (KWWL) -

A fatal accident in Floyd County is being blamed on a deer.

The Iowa State Patrol says 19-year-old Storm Gomez of Rossville, Georgia, was headed west on Highway 18 at around 2:35 a.m. Friday morning when a deer entered the roadway.

Troopers say Gomez swerved to miss the deer, but overcorrected and lost control, causing the pick-up truck to roll.

A passenger in the vehicle, 54-year-old Monique Seuss, also of Rossville, Georgia, was ejected from the vehicle and died at the scene.

Gomez was taken to a hospital to be treated for unspecified injuries.
