Whitney was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident.
Savannah Corbett and 11-year-old Olivia Corbett were transported to Methodist Hospital in Des Moines. The extent of their injuries was not released.
No injuries for Lyon were reported.
The accident remains under investigation by the Iowa State Patrol.
