Posted: Updated:

The Iowa State Patrol says a Hastings woman died in a head-on crash south of Council Bluffs on Sunday night. 

According to officers, the collision happened just before 5 p.m. along Highway 34 just east of the road's intersection with L-63, north of Malvern. The Patrol says 80-year-old Alice Campbell died following the accident.

An accident report says a car driven by 55-year-old Patti Jipsen of Elliott allegedly crossed the center line of the road and collided head-on with Campbell's car, which was headed eastbound. After colliding, Campbell's car crashed into a roadside ditch and rolled onto its top. 

Officers also say Jipsen was hurt in the crash and taken to an area hospital for treatment, while a 53-year-old Illinois woman in Jipsen's car was airlifted to an Omaha hospital due to injuries sustained in the accident.

The Iowa State Patrol says the accident remains under investigation today.
