JACKSON COUNTY (KWWL) - A 20-year-old and a 2-year-old from Bernard were killed Friday when their vehicle went off the road and landed on its top in a creek.

Elaine Edwards, 20, and her son Joey Edwards, 2, were both taken by Bernard Ambulance to the Jackson County Hospital where they were both pronounced dead on Friday, according to the Iowa State Patrol and a GoFundMe account set up by family.

Edwards was northbound on 86th Avenue in Jackson County to visit her mother and father on Friday when she lost control of her Chevy C25 near the intersection with Bernard Road, slid sideways, made contact with a railing and went through the railing, according to the crash report and the GoFundMe account.

The vehicle landed on its top in the creek below, according to the crash report.

The GoFundMe account was taking donations for their funeral expenses and noted the family had no life insurance. That link is here: http://www.gofundme.com/sx7d52d5.
