Authorities are investigating the death of a woman who was shot while sitting in the driver's seat of a vehicle in northwest Iowa.

The Sac County Sheriff's Office says the shooting was reported around 11:40 a.m. Sunday around two miles east of Lake View. The office says a man in the front passenger seat was handling a loaded handgun when it went off. The bullet struck the 24-year-old woman.

The Sheriff's Office says the woman was taken to Loring Hospital in Sac City and then flown to a Des Moines hospital, where she died.

The names of those involved have not been released, pending additional investigation and autopsy results.
