OSCEOLA COUNTY, Iowa — A woman and a child died as a result of a two-vehicle crash in northwest Iowa Sunday morning. Four other people were injured in the collision.
It happened around 9:15 a.m. at the intersection of US-59 and A34, about eight miles northeast of Ashton, according to a crash report from the Iowa State Patrol.
